Deal to sign Rowan Vine on loan from Queens Park Rangers costs Gillingham nothing
Gills boss Andy Hessenthaler says deadline day signing of
Rowan Vine was a "no-brainer."
Vine (pictured) arrived on loan from Premier League QPR and
Hessenthaler jumped at the chance to bring the forward on board,
revealing that it is costing the club nothing in wages.
Hessenthaler also claimed the player offered to pay his own
"He is just hungry to get out and get some games," said
Hessenthaler. "For me it was a no-brainer because there was no cost
"He was even prepared to pay his own way to come to us.
"That just shows his dedication and that he is hungry to get
some football again."
Vine came off the bench on Saturday and Hessenthaler knows the
striker needs to get in shape.
"We are going to try and get him as fit as we can in the next
eight games," Hessenthaler said.
"He will be an asset. He showed some glimpses (on Saturday) when
he came on."
