Mills told the club's official website: "It's just a case of getting things sorted at Gillingham's end."
"We have done all the talking. Tommy is top of my list and I am hoping to bring him in, but if I can't bring him in then I'll look elsewhere.
"I will do all I can to get him here and we are doing our best to try and get him."There's little doubt that Johnson's return would give the whole place a huge lift, especially with Notts looking extremely blunt upfront on Saturday.
Tommy and Heff, anyone?
