Gillingham extend loan deal for QPR full-back Michael Harriman and look at trialist Gary Dicker
Michael Harriman charges goalwards
Gillingham have confirmed that full-back Michael Harriman's loan from QPR has been extended for the remainder of the season.
Gills boss Martin Allen admitted earlier this week that he was keen to tie Harriman to Priestfield for a long period after he came in to replace injured full-back Matt Fish.
Allen said: "He signed this morning on a season long loan. It's a no brainier because he's a good player."
The Gills boss also confirmed rumours that Gary Dicker has been training with the club.
The 27-year-old midfielder recently had a trial at Barnsley and has been looking for a club since being released by Championship side Brighton, who he played 26 games for last season.
The transfer window for permanent signings closes on Monday night but it’s not a deadline that Allen is overly concerned with.
“A lot is made of it but we can still take loan players,” said the Gills boss, who still hopes to tie up a new signing by the weekend.
“There is a lot of hype and the there will be the big business moves at the top end of the market. We are all waiting for the Gareth Bale deal to be a record breaker but that’s not happening here."
