Gillingham are to step up their pursuit of free agent Adebayo Akinfenwa.Gillingham boss Ronnie Jepson will step up his pursuit of free agent Adebayo Akinfenwa this week, following the Swansea City striker's refusal of a new one-year deal at the Liberty Stadium.
The Gills were close to landing the powerhouse front-man back in the January transfer window, and Akinfenwa has told skysports.com that he expects to confirm his move to another League One side by Friday.
"I've had an approach from a Championship club, but I feel it's most likely I will stay in League One - probably 75/25.
"That means I will be playing against Swansea next season, and I will look forward to going back there because I have a number of good friends and great memories from my time in Wales.
"I have three offers and am quite set on where I want to go, so things should be sorted very quickly."
