34 year old Ade Akinbiyi, very much a fringe player these days for the Clarets is continuually being linked with a move away from Turf Moor. In the January transfer window there was talk that Ipswich might have been interested although this was generally dismissed by the Tractor Boys fans and in the end nothing materialised.
The window is now of course closed, but the loan market open ups next week on Tuesday the 10th February and now one of Ade's former clubs, Gillingham are reported by the local Kent media to be considering an offer.
Gillingham gaffer Mark Stimson would like to bring Ade back to the Priestfield Stadium and is quoted as saying:
'I would welcome someone like him with open arms because he's a fantastic footballer. You don't know. When the window opens for a loan deal for four weeks we would love to take him.'
The Gills could be boosted financially by the dosh they got from their game against Aston Villa in the FA Cup and might be looking to pay Ade accordingly for his services.
'Financially it would be way, way out of our bracket but if the chairman could pull something like that off for a month or two, then it would definitely be worth it.We haven't used a lot of the money from the Aston Villa (FA Cup) game so we are just waiting around for a crazy deal like that to happen'
The well-travelled journeyman, made his name with Gillingham scoring 29 goals in 68 appearances for the club between 1997-98. He had been signed from Norwich for a club record fee at the time of £250,000 in 1997 before moving onto newly-promoted Division One side Bristol City for £1.2m in 1998.
