Stimson welcomes Daniels signing

Gillingham manager Mark Stimson says new loan signing Charlie Daniels will feature in Saturday's game against Accrington Stanley.

The 21-year-old left-sided midfielder joined on Tuesday from Tottenham for a month, having spent much of last season on loan at Leyton Orient.

Stimson told BBC Radio Kent: "We've been looking at Charlie for a while.

"He's got a decent left foot and will add balance on the left side. The boy's got talent."

When he became available, I put it to the chairman. He's backed me to the hilt

Stimson has previously stressed that he needs to sell players before he can add to his squad because he needs to balance the books, but chairman Paul Scally has made an exception in Daniels' case.

Stimson said: "When he became available, I put it to the chairman. He's backed me to the hilt and said to me this week 'go for it - even if we don't get someone out I'm prepared to go with your judgement.'"

The Gillingham manager also wants to sign a League One striker he has been watching for a several weeks, but says that money and the forward's form for his present club may prevent the move.

The unnamed striker scored last weekend, but Stimson says he has not given up hope that he will come to Priestfield.
