Weston, 24, has signed a two-year deal, while 32-year-old Barrett has signed for one year with an option for a 12-month extension from Bournemouth.

Both are available for the Gills' first game of the season against Bradford at Priestfield in League Two.

Gills boss Allen told the club's official website: "Adam has had a tremendous career and has experienced three promotions as a player and captain.

"I have watched Myles many times and he adds another dimension with speed and ability to play in wide areas.

"We've been after both of these players for several weeks now. They both have good experience of getting promotion from this division and with these two we get leadership, goals, experience, speed and excitement."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
