Sligo Rovers have announced the signing of Bermuda captain Dante Leverock.

He moves to the League of Ireland from Estonian outfit Narva Trans.

The centre-back, who spent a lot of his childhood in England, had an impressive season in the Estonian league, including scoring eight goals from the back.

He has 15 caps and two goals with Bermuda and was recently appointed captain.

He started his career in English non-league before joining Harrisburg City Islanders in America and returned to play for Ilkeston under Shaun Goater.

"It’s an honour to sign for Sligo Rovers today," he said. 

"I’d heard about the club from former player Ciaran Nugent who I know from the Islanders and Jake Keegan too who plays for St Pat’s.

"I’ve done my research on Sligo Rovers and I see the community aspect of the club, that there’s a family within the club and that really attracted me to here.

"It’s important to me to be part of a close-knit group and I see football is very popular in Sligo.

"I’ve worked very hard to make it as a professional and I’ve just had a very good experience in Estonia. I think I did well and at international level it has been positive too.

"When I spoke to Liam I really couldn’t pass up the chance to come play for him and this club.

"He told me of how he wants Rovers to improve and I think he can help grow me as a player.

"He explained there will be tough competition but that’s something I thrive on and it makes us all better players.

"I really look forward to meeting the management, the players and fans of Sligo Rovers. We will aim for a very good year ahead for all of us."
