Andy Hessenthaler is set to meet Gillingham chairman Paul Scally next week to discuss a possible return to Priestfield.

The 44-year-old left Dover Athletic by mutual consent on Thursday, a move which has fuelled speculation that he could fill the vacant manager`s position at the Gills.Mark Stimson parted company with the Kent club earlier this month after failing to guide them to League One safety.

Fans-favourite Hessenthaler ended his 10-year association with the Gills as a player and manager in 2006 to join Barnet where we spent one season, before taking over at Dover.

He told Kent News: "I haven't spoken to (Gillingham chairman) Paul Scally because I wasn't officially allowed to by Dover, but I will be talking to him at some stage to find out if they want me at the club and move on and start working for Gills."

He added: "At the moment nothing has been confirmed but I would think we would hold talks next week."
