Midfielder Michael Doughty has extended his loan stay with Gillingham until January 2015

Michael Doughty has today agreed to extend his loan deal at MEMS Priestfield Stadium from Premier League side Queens Park Rangers until January 24.

The midfielder joined the Gills on October 24 on an initial one month loan deal, a day prior to the club's home fixture against Crawley Town, and started the game in the centre of midfield before featuring in our 1-0 defeat to Fleetwood at Highbury last weekend.

After a couple of impressive displays Manager Peter Taylor has moved quickly to secure his signature on a longer term basis, and he will now remain at the club until the New Year.

Reaction from Manager Peter Taylor and the player himself will follow on the club website.
