Gillingham have terminated the contract of goalkeeper Ross Flitney.
The 28-year-old former Fulham trainee has been on loan with Eastleigh and is expected to join the Blue Square Bet South side for the rest of the season.
Flitney (pictured) signed for the Gills from Dover in the summer of 2011. He had previously had league experience at Brighton and Doncaster and also had spells at Barnet, Grays and Dover.
He played for Dover under Gills former boss Andy Hessenthaler, and it was he who brought the keeper to Priestfield.
The keeper started last season as first choice but heavy defeats to Accrington and AFC Wimbledon in January, coupled with an injury, saw him lose his place to Argentine stopper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Flitney was unable to reclaim his spot in goal and spent the rest of the season watching from the sidelines.
A summer operation to alleviate a troublesome knee injury meant he started the season playing catch-up with his fitness.
The arrival of Stuart Nelson and Tommy Forecast left him as third choice and at the start of January was told his future lay elsewhere.
Flitney is the latest player to leave the Gills, as boss Martin Allen looks to trim the wage bill.
