The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

GILLING­HAM boss Justin Ed­in­burgh has strength­ened his mid­field with the sign­ing of Charl­ton young­ster Oliver Mul­doon.

The 20-year-old joined the Gills on loan un­til the end of the sea­son just hours af­ter sign­ing a new con­tract keep­ing him at the Val­ley un­til 2017.

And Ed­in­burgh be­lieves Mul­doon is just what he needs for the fi­nal ten games of the sea­son.

Ed­in­burgh said: “I’m pleased to have Oliver on board, he will give us an­other op­tion in the cen­tre of mid­field and has a good range of pass­ing.”

Mul­doon wasn’t the only bit of busi­ness wrapped up at Pri­est­field Sta­dium as striker Cody McDon­ald also signed a new deal un­til the sum­mer of 2017.

McDon­ald has banged in over 60 goals in three dif­fer­ent spells for the Gills, and he said: “I’m mas­sively happy. It was never re­ally in doubt and I’m pleased it’s all done.

“I’ve al­ways pro­duced my best foot­ball here and I en­joy play­ing here. It’s worked out well for the first two years and hope­fully in the sec­ond two I can con­tinue to im­prove.”
