GAVIN Hoyte is on trial at Southend United.

The 24-year-old defender has spent the last two seasons with Dagenham & Redbridge but has yet to commit his future to the club.

And he is expected to line up for the Shrimpers at Billericay Town tonight.

“Gavin will be coming in on trial for the Billericay and Tottenham games,” confirmed Blues boss Phil Brown.

“It would be good to get another defender in and put pressure on the back four for places.”

Hoyte came through the ranks at Arsenal and spent time on loan with Watford, Brighton, Lincoln and AFC Wimbledon before joining Dagenham in July 2012.

He has also played internationally for Trinidad and Tobago and played for them against Argentina before the start of the World Cup.

Hoyte will now be bidding to earn a deal with Blues but is unlikely to be joined in the side by Spaniard Alberto de las Heras.

The midfielder trained with the Shrimpers in Malaga last week and flew over to meet up with them again at the weekend.

However, Echosport understands the 26-year-old has since returned home although this has yet to be confirmed by the club.
