Daniel is the son of the Chelsea legend David Webb and started out as a trainee with Southampton as a striker, before Southend United agreed a £10,000 transfer fee to take him to Roots Hall in December 2000. Goals were hard to come by during his stay and he went out on loan to Brighton & Hove Albion in December 2001 until the end of the season. He returned to Southend, but went on loan to Brighton again in November 2002 for one month before returning to join Hull City in December. Again, he had trouble finding the back of the net, and went on a one month loan to Lincoln City in March 2003. A further loan in December 2003 saw him spend three months with Cambridge United, before joining the League Two side at the end of February 2004. In January 2006, he was released again, and joined Yeovil Town on an eighteen month deal. He never actually started a game for the Glovers, his appearances limited to coming off the bench. Daniel arrived at Nene Park on 4 January 2007 on a one month loan, but was released on 22 January returning back to Yeovil Town, before another loan deal with Woking.
