Gills clinch the signing of 19-year old centre back Harry Lennon from Championship side Charlton

Gillingham have captured the signing of Charlton Athletic defender Harry Lennon on a youth loan until January 3.

Manager Peter Taylor moved quickly following the news that Callum Davies had joined Dover Athletic on loan until the New Year, and Harry has signed in time to be available for Saturday's home fixture against Port Vale.

It is the youngster's second loan spell away from the Valley this season having featured three times for Cambridge before being recalled by the club in October.

He made his debut for Charlton during the 2013/14 season against Huddersfield in the FA Cup and went on to make two further appearances against Doncaster and Wigan.

The 19-year-old centre-back is eligible up to, and including, the Gills away fixture against Port Vale on January 3.
