The National League South have swooped to sign Chelmsford City’s striker after losing one of their own on Thursday.
Pavey left to sign for Havant & Waterlooville - the side who pipped them to the title on the final day of the season.
Dartford hope it’s them next season and new managers Jamie Coyle and Adam Flanagan have responded instantly to Pavey’s departure.
The ten-goal 25-year-old forward played well again the boss’ clubs Welling and Concord Rangers last season and Coyle hopes he carries on where he left off.
“Kudus first caught our eye last season when playing against Chelmsford and impressed us both,” he said.
“He is extremely quick and an intelligent player who is a constant threat in the final third. He will add real quality to the players that are already retained for next season.”
