The 22-year-old will sign on loan for Posh until January when he is expected to make the deal a permanent one.
He has played 20 games for Dagenham this season so far, three of which as a sub. He has had 28 shots on target scoring 7 goals.
Commenting on the signing, Chairman Darragh MacAnthony said: ‘He is a lovely lad whom I met with his father,only wants to play footy & nothing else. Proper Posh signing this one old style!
“Credit has to go to our DOF [Barry Fry] who has done some incredible business over last few days under tight pressure. Seriously good business!”
MacAnthony has hinted that Gayle won’t be the only player incoming this week: “We like a new signing or two!”.
