with the 24-year-old, who should be eligible for the season opener
against Birmingham City on Sunday, subject to international
clearance being received.
“We’re delighted to get Dorian on board and he will enhance our
squad,” said Powell.
“He has done very well during his trial period, and we feel he
will bring extra quality to our ranks. We’re very pleased and look
forward to working with him.”
Dervite becomes Powell’s fourth signing of the summer after
Jordan Cook, Salim Kerkar and Lawrie Wilson and will compete for a
central defensive role with Matt Taylor, Leon Cort and Yado

side Lille and made the switch to Spurs’ academy in 2006 where he
made only one appearance for the side.

Villarreal B over the past two seasons.
