Gillingham have completed the signing of former Charlton midfielder Rashid Yussuff on a one-year deal.

The 19-year-old has been on trial at Priestfield since the start of pre-season and impressed manager Mark Stimson enough to earn a contract.

The former Charlton man`s arrival is a timely one, with Kevin Maher now a doubt for Saturday`s League One opener against Swindon after suffering an ankle injury at Crystal Palace on Sunday

Fellow midfielder Stuart Lewis has already been ruled out of the start of the season with an ankle injury.
