Done Deal: Promising Premier League defender signs for Gillingham on loan



Sky Bet League One side Gillingham have confirmed on their official website the signing of promising defender Baily Cargill from Premier League outfit AFC Bournemouth on a loan deal until January.

Cargill, who can play anywhere across the backline, has become Gillingham’s 12th summer signing and second loan arrival from the Cherries.

The 21-year-old versatile defender made his debut for Bournemouth in a 2-0 victory against Exeter City in the League Cup in August 2014, and became a consistent starter in the competition. His impressive displays rewarded him a three-year contract lasting until the summer of 2017.

Cargill was sent out on-loan to Non-league team Welling United in October 2013, where he played 13 games. Towards the latter stages of the 2013/14 campaign, he joined Torquay United for another loan spell, making five appearances but failed to help keep the Gulls in the Football League.

In February this year, he joined Coventry City in a loan deal until the end of the 2015/16 season.

Cargill is the Gills’ fourth defensive arrival this summer, with Adedeji Oshilaja, Josh Pask and Paul Konchesky also joining the Priestfield outfit.

He is highly-rated at Bournemouth and, with seven caps at England Under-19 level, he is thought to have a bright future ahead of him.

Gillingham fans… what do you make of the news? Have you got enough defensive cover now? Can you mount a promotion challenge after last season’s failure? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
