Peter Taylor believes the Gills would be priced out of a move for former striker Simeon Jackson.

The 27-year-old, who helped the Gills to promotion in 2009, has been linked with a move back to the club after ending this season at Millwall.

He moved back to England in February to play for the Championship side following a brief spell with German Bundesliga side Braunschweig.

Jackson is out of contract after scoring twice for the Lions last season in 14 games, the majority coming from the substitute bench.

Gills boss Peter Taylor said: “He is a player I have always liked and he did okay here.

“He is a player I would be very interested but I would imagine he would be a bit steep on the wages for us.”

Jackson signed for the Gills for £150,000 in 2008 from Rushden and went onto score 42 goals in 115 games – the most memorable being his headed goal at Wembley which earned the Gills promotion in the League 2 play-off under Mark Stimson.

A year later he moved to Norwich City, where he spent three years.
