Peter Taylor believes Jake Hessenthaler can be the complete midfielder.
The 19-year-old was largely used in a defensive role last season but the Gills manager believes he has plenty to offer going forward as well.
Taylor said: “The nice thing about Jake is that people can’t say he is a holding midfielder that can pass because looking at him now, he can run forward, he can get us a goal – closer than the one he has scored – and he has a bit more about him.
“He could be an attacking midfield player as well as defensive.”
