Gillingham sign QPR striker Rowan Vine on loan

Gillingham have signed Queens Park Rangers striker Rowan Vine on loan until the end of the season.

Vine, 29, spent a month on loan at Exeter earlier in the campaign and played for Southend reserves last week.

The Gills have been depleted up front recently, with injuries to Jo Kuffour, Danny Kedwell, Gavin Tomlin and Adam Birchall leaving them short of options.

The former Portsmouth trainee goes straight into Gillingham's squad for this Saturday's trip to Bradford.

Manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent that it was unlikely any players would be departing Priestfield on deadline day.

"I've been public on the ones we can let go out on loan and some of the younger ones.

"(Striker) Dennis Oli was in that category but we've had to use him and he's in the squad at the moment.

"We've had no calls."
