Maidstone United have signed Cameron James on loan from Colchester United.
The 21-year-old checks in at the Gallagher Stadium on a one-month deal.
Capable of playing in both central midfield and in defence, he has already made 29 appearances for the U’s in Leagues One and Two, the EFL Cup and the EFL Trophy.
He said: “I’ve been waiting for the deal to go through for the last three or four days.
“I played for Hakan (Hayrettin) last year and we had a good relationship. I know his style of play and he knows mine, so he’s got in touch with Colchester about me coming in and that’s how the move came about.”
