Gillingham chairman Paul Scally is adamant the League Two champions will only sell midfielder Jack Payne if the deal is right.

Scally is keen to keep hold of the 21-year-old and insists the Gills are under no pressure to sell despite interest from the likes of Birmingham.

He told Kent Online on Wednesday: "I have heard that Birmingham are interested in him and I have had a missed call from Birmingham but not had chance to talk to them yet.

"He is raring to go and I think he is quite happy to stay with us next year and fight for his place. It has done him good to go and play football at Peterborough.

"We are not particularly looking to sell Jack Payne and would like to have him next year.

"I am under no pressure to sell him and would be more than happy if he stays and did his stuff with us because I think he has grown up a lot in the last six months to a year."
