Ogilvie returns to Gills on loan

Steve Lovell has added to his defensive options with the signing of Connor Ogilvie.

Gillingham have completed the loan signing of Connor Ogilvie from Tottenham Hotspur for a second time.

The left-back arrives at Priestfield on loan until December 31 and is eligible to play against Barnsley at Oakwell tomorrow, if selected.

Last season the 22-year-old made 42 appearances and scored one goal, that coming against Bury at Gigg Lane in February as the Gills slipped to a 2-1 defeat.

The defender has also had loan spells at League 2 Stevenage, making 42 appearances and scoring once.

On securing Connor’s signature Steve Lovell said: “I’m pleased to bring Connor back to the club; he did very well for us last season and we felt we needed some extra cover on that left side of defence, although he can also fill in at centre-half.

“He will be a strong addition to the squad and we are looking forward to having him back with us.”
