He told the Daily Gazette: ‘I know Ashley very well.
‘He`s a top player and he would be a brilliant signing for us.’
The U’s record-signing also said of how he thinks Vincent is the quickest player in the whole of League One.
Gillespie added: ‘I don`t think that there is anyone quicker than Ashley in the league.’
