Maidstone United have signed much-sought after striker Dumebi Dumaka from Ryman League Premier Division side Grays Athletic.
The 22-year-old is joint third top scorer in the Ryman Premier with 23 goals for the Gravelmen.
He joined the Essex outfit in August 2014 after impressing in training and pre-season friendlies that summer.
Dumaka has made a big impression at Mill Field in the past season and a half, attracting interest from West Ham, Ipswich Town, Fleetwood and Cambridge United.
Manager Jay Saunders said: “We’ve made no secret about wanting to add to our striking options if the right player came along. That search was intensified in the last week or so with Alex Akrofi, Adam Birchall and Jay May all suffering from either illness or injury.
“DD is someone we’ve kept an eye on. He’s a proven goalscorer in Ryman Prem and has it about him to make a mark at National South. You don’t get Premier League and Championship clubs taking an interest for nothing. We’ll see how he gets on with us between now and the end of the season and take things from there.”
