Maidstone United have agreed terms with striker Johan ter Horst.

The 22-year-old was on the books of Hull City – relegated from the Premier League – until a few weeks ago.

He joined the Tigers on a three-year deal in the summer of 2014, with the club beating several others to secure his signature.

He came to prominence during the 2013/14 season, scoring 26 goals for Folkestone Invicta to help the club reach the Ryman League Division One South play-offs.

Manager Jay Saunders said: “I am really pleased to get Johan on board. He’s someone I’ve liked since his Folkestone days and those three years at Hull will have improved his game even more.

“He has plenty of pace, is a good finisher and gives me different options to the frontmen we’ve already got. We now possess an exciting frontline with pace, power and hopefully plenty of goals.”

ter Horst added: “I see this move as a very good opportunity for me. Maidstone is a club definitely on the way up and I hope that I can be a part of that, play a big part next season and score goals for the club. I am really looking forward to it.”

The player is currently recovering from a shoulder operation and should be available for selection towards the end of August.
