Gillingham boss Peter Taylor will be recruiting heavily in the summer after releasing 11 players.

Among those leaving the Gills are Charlie Lee, Steven Gregory, Myles Weston and Adam Birchall.

Contract offers have been made to Adebayo Akinfenwa and Chris Whelpdale.

Gills boss Peter Taylor said: “I am looking at the market and now we find out other players who are available and we can compare then.”

Deals have already been agreed with player-of-the-year Stuart Nelson and Danny Kedwell.

Joining Lee, Gregory, Weston and Birchall out of the door are keepers Sam Baxter and George Howard, along with Gary Borrowdale, Craig Fagan, Sam Muggleton, Stephen Butcher and Joe Carter.

Young striker Nathan Nyafli is also on Gillingham’s released list but he had already announced his football retirement, following a serious injury.

Taylor currently has a squad of 15 senior pros, which includes a trio of youngsters, Aaron Millbank, Devante McKain and Josh Hare, who recently penned one year deals.

The rest of the squad consists of Nelson, Leon Legge, Matt Fish, Adam Barrett, Callum Davies, Joe Martin, Jake Hessenthaler, Amine Linganzi, Bradley Dack, Kedwell, Cody McDonald and Antonio German.
