The 19 year old central midfielder struggled to break through into the first team at Wednesday after signing from Swindon Town.

He was subsequently allowed to leave Hillsborough on loan and Gills boss Martin Allen moved fast to secure his services with a view to offering him a deal in the summer:

“This afternoon I found out my nephew Harry Grant was not getting a new contract at Sheffield Wednesday.” Allen told the club’s official website.

“He is only 19 and joins us on loan and will be involved with our Development Squad with a view to earning a contract for next season.”
