Dorian Dervite: In talks with Charlton over prolonging his stay at The Valley

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.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
