Defender Brent Sancho could now sign for English League One side Gillingham.
The dreadlocks defender hinted on Tuesday that the club had expressed interest in his services but he was not sure on his status with Scottish side Kilmarnock. But now that the club has opted not to sign him, Sancho is optimistic of a move to Gillingham.
"Kilmarnock explained their reasons for not keeping me and knowing that Gillingham had been interested, hopefully something can now be put on the table for me to accept. Gillingham are a good club and there remains the possibility that I can end up there," Sancho said.
Kilmarnock boss Jim Jeffries explained why he didn't sign Sancho after watching him score in a closed-door game against Glasgow Rangers on Tuesday, saying: "It was a great opportunity to see how the players would perform against a strong Rangers side and ultimately give me a reason to offer them a contract, but I felt that they didn't show enough. Both are good players but Brent in particular is more of a playmaker and not the aggresive ballwinner I am looking for."
