McDonald, who is in his third spell with the Gills, has scored 16 goals in 38 appearances this season.

"I'm massively happy. To be honest it was never really in doubt," he told the club website.external-link

McDonald joined Gillingham permanently in the summer of 2013 following a successful loan spell during the 2012-13 campaign.

In his first spell with the Gills, on loan from Norwich during the 2010-11 season, McDonald scored 25 goals in 41 league games.

In total he has netted 62 goals in 136 outings for the Kent club.

"I've always produced my best football here and I enjoy playing here," he said.

"It's worked out well for the first two years and hopefully in the second two I can continue to improve."
