Gillingham have become the third club to see a bid accepted for Dover striker Adam Birchall.

Swindon and AFC Wimbledon have both had significant undisclosed offers accepted over the weekend and Gills - who saw a derisory bid rejected on Friday - have now joined the race by matching those of their League Two rivals.

And the Kent club may well have jumped straight to the front of the queue for the prolific marksman.


Birchall is understood to have requested to speak to Gillingham, his number one choice, and they then tabled their improved valuation of the 26-year-old, who is set to become a father and currently lives locally in Maidstone.

Birchall also played under Gills boss Andy Hessenthaler when he was in charge of the non-league outfit prior to his return to the Priestfield last year.

Hessenthaler has admitted a new striker is currently his number one priority, while he has already raided Dover for highly-rated duo Ross Flitney and Matt Fish.
