Gills delight as Nouble signs

Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler is delighted at completing the signing of Frank Nouble from West Ham on a one-month loan deal.
The 19-year-old - who has enjoyed loan stints at West Brom, Swindon, Swansea, Barnsley and Charlton - arrives at Priestfield to bolster Gillingham's attacking options.
Hessenthaler told Gillingham's official website: "Frank has an excellent pedigree and comes to us from a proper club and I would like to thank West Ham and Ian Hendon (former Gills assistant manager and now development coach at Upton Park) for helping us out on this one."
Gills have been short in the final third since losing Adam Birchall over the summer to a long-term knee injury, with Hessenthaler earlier this week missing out on the services of Jon-Paul Pittman after he decided to complete a loan switch to Crawley instead.
Nouble, an England Under-19 international, started his career at Chelsea before completing a switch to West Ham in the summer of 2009. He has made a total of 10 Premier League appearances for the Hammers.
He is available to make his debut in Saturday's clash at Hereford.
