Midfielder Vas Karagiannis has joined Margate on a month`s loan from National League side Maidstone United.
He joined Maidstone from Ryman League Premier Division side Leatherhead in December 2015.
The 24-year-old had been a long-term target for boss Jay Saunders. In a season and a half with the Tanners, Karagiannis scored 35 times and attracted interest from numerous clubs.
Born in Greece, he spent time in France before moving to England to join Welling United in February 2014.
A move to Fetcham Grove followed during the close season. He made a couple of appearances for Hayes & Yeading United last season.
But he has found first-team opportunities limited so far this season, making just two appearances from the bench.
Karagiannis could make his Gate debut in tonight’s match against league newcomers` East Thurrock United.
