The 30-year-old trained with the Championship newcomers on Monday and is set to feature in their friendly against Exeter on Tuesday evening.

Tate initially joined Swansea on loan from Manchester United, where he started his career as a trainee, in 2002 and played a key part in their rise through the divisions to the Premier League.

He has made 303 appearances for the Swans but only featured four times in the Premier League last season and was loaned out to Leeds for two months.

Tate has now been deemed surplus to requirements by Swansea boss Michael Laudrup, but his experience is sure to be a valuable asset to Yeovil manager Gary Johnson as his side embark on their first season in English football's second tier.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
