Gills manager Martin Allen has decided against offering Barry Fuller a new contract – but hasn’t dismissed the idea entirely.

Allen has transfer targets in mind for the right-back area but could still turn to the former Gills skipper if nothing materialises.

Allen said: “He is a diamond bloke to have around the club but I have to make these decisions. I had a good honest chat with Barry and in a few weeks’ time if he hasn’t got something and we haven’t got what we want then the door will still be left open for Barry Fuller to return here.”

Fuller (pictured) has been given the opportunity to continue training with the Gills to maintain fitness.

The Ashford-based defender joined the Gills in January 2008 and captained the side under Mark Stimson, leading the side to a play-off win in the 2009 League 2 final.

But last season he was restricted to just 10 appearances due to injury.

Fuller tweeted: “Sad to be leaving the gills after 4yrs. some great memories and meet some great people. Thanks to the people who supported me in that time.”

Allen, meanwhile, has opted to let Dean Morgan leave the club after a brief trial while Ryan Gilligan – a player the Gills boss was keen on – appears set for a move to Sweden.
