The transfer deadline isn’t likely to hold much significance at Priestfield.

This summer’s transfer window for permanent deals closes at 11pm on Monday.

Gillingham boss Peter Taylor has already made nine new signings since the end of last season and captured two more players on loan. And with the injury situation gradually clearing up, Taylor isn’t in the market for new additions just yet.

“I don’t think we will be busy,” he said. “I don’t think we will be making any headlines on that one.

“I don’t see anything happening with us, not unless someone rings me up and wants to take one of ours, but hopefully not.”

Last week the Football League revealed the amount each of their member clubs spent on agents’ fees, in their annual report. The Gills’ figure of £15,000 was one of the lowest in League 1.

Between July 1, 2013 and June 30 this year, the Gills completed 11 new signings, updated two contracts and cancelled six. Including 23 loan deals, in and out, there were 42 transactions in total.

Wolves, who were promoted, paid over half a million pounds in fees to agents over the same period, while Bristol City (£339,467), Brentford (£253,236), Preston (£189,104) and Bradford (£157,680) were all big spenders.
