New centre back signed

The official club site reports that Chris Powell has strengthened his squad ahead of the start of the 2012/13 Championship season by recruiting former Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Dorian Dervite-Vaussoue.

The 24-year-old ex-France youth international has been on trial at The Valley during pre-season, and particularly caught the eye in a friendly against Crawley Town.

He has signed a one-year contract, and, subject to international clearance being received, should be eligible for the season-opener against Birmingham City on Saturday.

I would be surprised if he was chosen ahead of Cort and Morrison and the one year contract suggests limitations to what it is thought he can do. However, Kermorgant will have someone else to talk to in his native tongue.
