Bolton Wanderers’ Dorian Dervite has signed a new one-year contract with the club as confirmed by their official website.

Dervite mostly watched from the bench last season with Mark Beevers and David Wheater being the main stars in a defence that was statistically the best in the entire country this season. It was this formidable defence that meant sure that Bolton secured a very quick return to the Sky Bet Championship. But even though Dervite would only make 14 appearances for the club as they got promoted, he was still seen as playing a key role and now he will be staying at the Macron Stadium for another year.

Even though it is likely going to be another year on the bench for Dervite, he has penned a deal with Bolton that will keep him at the club for another year with the option of an additional year on top. For the Lancashire club, they now have a defender they are familiar contracted for another season which could be useful should one of Beevers and Wheater go down.

After the contract was signed, Dervite said: “I’m really pleased to have the deal sorted. Since joining the club three years ago, I have enjoyed my time here and last season, it was fantastic to be a part of a promotion-winning team.”

“I liked working with the manager too and I am pleased that my contract has been sorted early on in the summer so that I can focus on my pre-season preparations.”

“I look forward to playing Championship football once again and hopefully making more happy memories with Bolton Wanderers.”
