Tom Eaves would be a huge loss for Gillingham, he is currently the top goalscorer in League 1 with 14 goals and it’s believed that Rangers are tracking Tom Eaves ahead of the January transfer window, according to Sky Sports.
Tomas Holy joined Gillingham in January 2017 from Sparta Prague and he has established himself as No.1 goalkeeper at the Priestfield with the keeper ever-present so far this season.
The 6ft 9in shot stopper, and his performances have certainly caught the eye of clubs higher up in the football pyramid.
The 26 year-old has created himself a reputation as one of the best keepers in League One with his sheer size and presence making him a formidable barrier for opposition forward lines.
Gillingham chairman Paul Scally told Kent Online: “They want to try their chance at the Championship. If we could get into the Championship then they will stay with us, I am sure.”
“We won’t stop trying to keep them but I applaud the fact that they want to play higher. Every player in the team should want to play in the Championship.”
“Of course I would love to keep Tom Eaves, of course we have done everything we can, but it doesn’t necessarily always come down to money.”
“There are many players who actually want the opportunity to play in the Championship and for that you must applaud them.”
“If we aren’t successful in keeping either of them, then they will go with our blessing and our thanks. We wish them well in their future careers, as we would anyone in that situation.”
