Kevin Dos Santos is leaving Darlington after agreeing a move abroad.

The winger is leaving the UK for a move to the Canadian Premier League, ending his time with Quakers after one season in which he made 41 appearances and scored four goals.

Dos Santos was born in Portugal, and played for Vilafranque and Vitoria Setubal before coming to England.

He first impressed Alun Armstrong when he played at Blackwell Meadows in an FA Cup tie for Tadcaster Albion, a night in which team-mate Erico Sousa also shone and subsequently joined Darlington.

Two of Dos Santos’ goals in Quakers colours were spectacular, one at home to Telford and the other away to Fylde which won the club’s goal of the season award.

While his exit will disappoint some supporters, Armstrong is optimistic about the chances of bringing striker Mark Beck back to the club.

A free agent after leaving Harrogate Town at the end of last season, Sunderland-based Beck has trained with Darlington this summer.

The 28-year-old joined Quakers in the summer of 2016 and made 57 appearances for the club, scoring 19 goals, and left in the first half of the 2017-18 season when he joined Harrogate.

Quakers have made three additions so far this summer, recruiting left-back Jassem Sukar and striker Jacob Hazel from Whitby Town and signing former Peterborough United, Charlton Athletic and Bolton Wanderers attacking midfielder Marcus Maddison.

All three played on Tuesday when Armstrong’s men played their first friendly of the summer, a 5-2 win away to Newton Aycliffe, and on Saturday afternoon they play at Crook Town with Beck likely to be involved.
