Donervon Daniels has announced his decision to return to Premier League side West Bromwich Albion.

The on-loan defender has just completed a month long loan from  the Baggies.

He featured just three times in that period and was an unused substitute in the last five games.

Gills boss Peter Taylor was keen to keep the 20-year-old defender for longer, despite preferring Leon Legge and Adam Barrett at the back.

But Daniels tweeted: “Great performance from the boys last night to get the result that mattered for the club. Back to Birmingham now.

“Would like to thank everyone involved with Gillingham for my time at the club, the Lads, the coaching staff and the amazing fans for the welcoming me.

“Wish the club all the luck in the future. God Bless!”

Daniels’ last game for the Gills came in the 3-1 defeat at Notts County.

The loan deal for midfielder Danny Hollands also expired on Saturday. The Charlton Athletic player has been out with a knee injury but could be fit to play Colchester next week, if his deal is extended.
