League One side Gillingham have signed Watford striker Alex Jakubiak on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old has only featured once so far for the Hornets and spent last season on loan at Bristol Rovers.

The Scotland Under-19 international has previously had spells with Braintree, Oxford, Dagenham & Redbridge, Fleetwood Town, Wycombe and Falkirk.

"He arrives here with a point to prove that he has a future with Watford," boss Steve Evans said.

Jakubiak is Gillingham's 12th signing of the summer transfer window.

They start the new season with a trip to Doncaster on Saturday 3 August.
