Daniel played for Hearts at youth level before moving to Spartans FC for the 2014/15 season. Since then, he has played his football out in the USA at the University of Mobile in Alabama.
The defender was recruited by University of Mobile Head Coach, Dan Whelan, a former Blackburn Rovers player and, while he was over there, he combined his football with an International Business combined with Humanities degree.
Daniel returned from the States as a free agent and signed for the ‘Gers in February 2020, playing a handful of times before the premature conclusion of the 2019/20 season due to COVID-19.
Nevertheless, the management team saw plenty of potential, with Daniel one of the first players to put pen to paper for the 2020/21 season.
