The 21-year-old arrived at Spurs from Lille in 2006, and made his only competitive appearance for the Tottenham first team in a League Cup match against Port Vale in November of the same year.

Dervite had featured in Harry Redknapp’s side in pre-season last year, playing in the Wembley Cup defeat to Celtic, but was unable to force his way into the first XI, despite injuries to key defenders Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate.
