Gillingham midfielder Matt Jarvis has rejected a new contract.
Jarvis has been linked with a move away from Gillingham
Manager Ronnie Jepson had insisted that he did not want the 20-year-old to leave despite recent interest from Premiership and Championship clubs.
But Jarvis has turned down what the club describe as their biggest ever contract for a player of his age.
If he remains at Gillingham at the end of the season he would not be able to leave on a free transfer because of his age, but a tribunal would set the fee.
