Gills make their first signing of the January transfer window.

Stephen Clemence has made his first signing as Gills boss with the capture of Remeao Hutton on a permanent transfer from Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old full-back, who can also operate as wing-back, came through the youth ranks at Walsall but, following release, played non-league for Sutton Coldfield Town and Hednesford Town prior to signing for Birmingham City on an initial one-year deal in the summer of 2017.

Hutton made his professional debut while on loan at Yeovil Town in August 2019. He made 29 appearances in total for the Glovers, scoring one goal before going on to enjoy another loan stint, this time with Stevenage, the following season in League 2. While at the Lamex Stadium, the defender made 31 appearances in all competitions before returning to St. Andrews.

In the summer of 2021, Hutton signed for Barrow on a two-year contract and, during his first year at the club he featured in 51 games and his consistent performances alerted the attentions of Swindon Town, who grabbed Remeao’s signature in the summer of 2022 for an undisclosed fee.

During his time at the County Ground, Hutton has played in 76 games and scored one goal.

He has signed in time to be eligible for selection for Saturday’s game against Forest Green Rovers at Priestfield.

On signing for the club, Remeao said: "Everyone seems really friendly here so I can't wait to get going. The new owners are looking to grow the club and I want to be a part of that. 

"I know a few of the lads already so that was a factor in coming here. I want to create as many chances as possible."

Head Coach Stephen Clemence added: “I am delighted that we have managed to secure Remeao’s signature. We have worked very hard to get this over the line and I am so happy to have him here.

“He is an athletic player who likes to get forward and his crossing from wide areas is superb.

“He will be a real asset to the team and we are very much looking forward to working with him.”  

 

An interview with the player will be on iFollow shortly.
