Lee Hodson is an Northern Ireland international and has made 24 caps for his country.

Lee Hodson told the club website: “I’m looking forward to getting started; it’s a club that has ambitions and I want to be a part of it.

“It’s a nice family club; I’m delighted to be here and I can’t wait to meet the lads and get started.”

Gillingham manager Steve Evans said: “He’s a very, very accomplished stylish attacking player. He has signed as a right-back but has experience at left-back and across the midfield four.
