Gillingham extend Frank Nouble's loan spell for a month

Gillingham have extended West Ham striker Frank Nouble's loan spell for another month.

The 20-year-old was scheduled to return to Upton Park after Saturday's game at Torquay, but he will now remain at Priestfield until 19 November.

Gills manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent: "Frank's deal will be extended. We've agreed all that for another month - so that's good news.

"He expressed to everybody that he'd like to stay for another month."

Nouble has scored twice in five games for Gillingham, and has recently switched from striker to play on the right wing.

He will be available for the next six League Two games - up to and including the trip to Aldershot.

The Hammers have not however given permission for him to play in the Gills' FA Cup first round fixture.

"He's enjoying it and that's great for us," said Hessenthaler.

"We've got options, whether we play 4-4-2 or 4-3-3, we'll have to wait and see.

"But all of a sudden the squad's been decimated really, but whatever team we put out on Saturday - it's still going to be a strong team."

Hessenthaler confirmed that top scorer Danny Kedwell will miss the game at Torquay with a toe injury and Charlie Lee is also unlikely to feature.
