Gillingham have completed the signing of Jacob Mellis, who had been available as a free agent following his departure from Bolton.

Mellis joined Wanderers on a free transfer from Mansfield Town in January and made six appearances before the campaign was curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He wasn't offered the opportunity to extend his stay at the University of Bolton Stadium and says the chance to link up once again with manager Steve Evans and his assistant, Paul Raynor, was one he wanted to take following their previous working relationship at Mansfield.

"I'm really happy," Mellis told "It all happened pretty quickly but I'm pleased to have everything signed.

"I played for the Gaffer and Rayns at Mansfield and they got the best out of me so when the chance came up to join them again, I wanted to do it.

"Everyone has missed Football so I think you'll see hungry players everywhere; I can't wait to get back training again."
