Gillingham striker Antonio German has joined League strugglers Northampton Town on a month’s loan.

The 22-year-old has failed to find the target for the Gills in the 12 games he has played this season.

He rejoined the club in the summer, having impressed former boss Martin Allen last season, during a brief loan stint.

But he has failed to make an impact at the Gills this season, finding himself down the pecking order, behind Danny Kedwell, Cody McDonald and Adebayo Akinfenwa.

He was transfer listed in mid-September by former boss Allen and struggled to make his way into the plans of current manager Peter Taylor.

His only starts this season have come in cup competitions, with all of his league appearances coming off the bench.

He joins a Northampton Town side who sit rock bottom of League 2.
