Could Martin Allen be tempted away from Gillingham? Reports have linked him with the vacancy at Sheffield United!
Allen has moved quickly to dismiss this talk on a move to the League One side though, with him adamant that only a Premier League move would lure him away: 'I will be at Priestfield next season. I have an agreement with Mr Scally that if a Premier League club come in then I will go, nobody can stop me, obvious.
'I promised him last summer when I sat in his office that I would do my job at Priestfield.'
"The grass isn't always greener" is an expression that's common in football, and Allen has found this out himself in the past.
He's admitted that he's sometimes made the wrong move and has no intention of doing this again as he's more than happy at Gillingham, adding: 'I have walked away on several occasions and gone for the money and once I needed to have a holiday and I needed a break. I was exhausted and I was drained of all my energy and that's the only reason I left Brentford.
'Here I am fit and I am well and I like working with Mr Scally. I feel this can go forward and we can improve on and off the pitch.
'Let's be honest. Speculation is always going to be there. If you are good at your job there is going to be speculation. I am good at my job.
'What has happened here, with my staff, the players, the supporters and the backing of Mr Scally has just been waiting to happen.'
Having been bitten before Allen, who has another year on his Gills contract, isn't going to be bitten again.
