The 25-year-old's current contract runs until June and Dervite says he is enjoying his football under new Addicks boss Jose Riga.

The defender - who began his career with Lille and has also played for Tottenham and Villarreal - was handed a contract in 2012 after impressing then manager Chris Powell on trial.

Powell was sacked by chairman Roland Duch√Ętelet in March and Dervite - who scored in Tuesday's crucial 3-2 win over fellow Championship relegation strugglers Yeovil - admits he appreciates having the trust of new boss Riga.

Happy

He told the South London Press: "I talked last week with the chairman so hopefully I will be more than happy to stay here.

"I have to see a few things and then hopefully I can sign a long-term contract here.

"I was happy before and I wasn't playing as much as when the new gaffer came in but if he keeps his positive attitude then I would be more than happy to stay here.

"I am the kind of player that when I know I have got the trust of the manager then I give even more and I have always been like that since I was young and that is going well. I am happy for myself and the team."

Meanwhile, Dagenham have extended the loan of Charlton striker Ade Azeez until the end of the season.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
