DONE DEAL: Gillingham sign Watford goalkeeper Pontus Dahlberg

Gillingham have signed Watford goalkeeper Pontus Dahlberg on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old had joined Doncaster Rovers on a season-long loan in August, making 18 appearances before his spell was cut short earlier on Friday.

He will be available for the Gills’ League One fixture against Burton Albion on Saturday.

The Sweden international began his career with Alvangens IK before moving to the Hornets in January 2018.

He has also had loan spells at FC Emmen in the Netherlands and BK Hacken in Sweden.

The two-cap Sweden international started 16 games at Doncaster but had been a substitute for over a month prior to Saturday’s defeat against Fleetwood.

He replaces Jamie Cumming, who was recalled by Chelsea this week and sent to MK Dons, and becomes the second Watford loanee in the Gillingham squad, alongside midfielder Daniel Phillips.
