A summer signing from Stevenage, Dean is aiming to reignite a career that looked so promising when he made his debut for Tottenham Hotspur.
Dean, who was on QPR’s books as a youth player, joined Spurs in 2007 and he went onto make his debut in the UEFA Cup against Shakhtar Donetsk.
First-team opportunities were limited and he went onto have loan spells at Aldershot Town, Plymouth Argyle, Charlton Athletic, Yeovil Town, and Swindon Town.
Following his release by Tottenham in 2013, Dean joined Stevenage and spent three seasons there, before Neal Ardley snapped him up in July.
Dean was capped by England at every level from Under-16 to Under-20.
