Peter Taylor isn’t expecting much action at Priestfield on transfer deadline day.

Friday evening marks the final date where clubs can exchange contracted players on permanent deals. But with Gills boss Taylor only targeting one loan defender, he sees no need to panic ahead of the impending deadline.

He said: “It is not a major headache at this level because after the deadline closes, we have a week off and then we can get some more loans in if needed. It is not such a major situation for us.”

Once the transfer window closes, the Gills can bring in loan players the following week.

“I still think we need another defender in the group,” said Taylor. “If I was to get him, then I wouldn’t be driving Mr Scally (the chairman) mad because I then know I would have enough bodies to cover whatever we need.”

Gillingham pair Charlie Allen and Adam Birchall are still available for loan.

Taylor said: “For their sake it would be good for them to go and play. If there is a club that would take them on loan, then that’s something I am interested in.”
