Welling United have signed former West Ham United defender Callum McNaughton on a one-year deal.

The 22-year-old, who previously had spells with AFC Wimbledon and Kingstonian, spent the 2013-14 campaign with Bishop's Stortford.

"We watched him for a fair chunk of last season, so we know all about him," Welling boss Jamie Day said.

"Callum is a die-hard central defender who puts his body on the line, but he can also play and pass as well."

Day added: "He is still young so I'm delighted that we've got him and can help him develop during the coming season."

Meanwhile, Welling expect striker Ross Lafayette to leave Park View Road despite agreeing a new one-year deal with the Wings.

They believe the 27-year-old, who has scored 39 goals in 90 appearances for the Conference Premier club, is poised to join promoted Luton Town.
