Regan Charles-Cook has turned down a 12-month contract extension at Charlton Athletic and opted to join Gillingham.
The midfielder, 21, has played nine first-team matches for the Addicks. His previous loans include Solihull Moors and Woking.
A Charlton statement said Charles-Cook “was offered the chance to remain at The Valley for a further 12 months following the expiration of his current contract, but has opted to make the move to the Priestfield Stadium in search of first-team opportunities.”
Charles-Cook tweeted: “During my time I have made some great memories and friends that will live with me forever. However I know feel like it’s time for me to start a new journey.”
