Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler is hoping to complete a deal to keep French trialist Bruce Inkango at Priestfield permanently.

The 26-year-old former AS Cannes winger has played in two reserve games, scoring in the 3-2 defeat against Plymouth, and has impressed enough to be offered a deal.

Hessenthaler told the clubs official website: "I've spoken to the chairman - he's been fantastic and came up with an offer."

He added: "We'd like to keep him at the club until January and we are hoping to talk to the agent on Thursday and see what we can agree.

"Reserve rules state that he can't play in any more games now but I have been impressed with what I've seen so far.

"He is an out-and-out winger and gives us something different to what we already have. He's got pace, he will get at people and cause problems. He can turn a game with his pace and trickery so he's definitely an interesting option."
