JAMES EVERITT could make his Whitstable Town debut on Saturday after manager Nicky Southall put in a seven-day request to speak to the Hythe Town player.
Southall said: "He knows we’re interested and Hythe know we’re interested. Hythe could release his signature early in time for Saturday. That would be a great gesture by Hythe.
"I like him. He’s strong, he’s experienced at this level and he’s got goals in him. He can play in different positions and I want players like that."
Whitstable have already completed other transfer business this week, bringing in striker Dave Raggett – the older brother of Dover defender Sean.
Southall has also drafted in striker Jamie O’Connell, who served an apprenticeship with Notts County.
This weekend, Whitstable face a crunch clash at Corinthian Casuals, hoping to stretch their unbeaten away run to three games in Ryman League, Division 1 South.
He said: "When you play away from home, the shackles are off a little bit.
"Corinthian Casuals is a massive game because if we beat them, we pull away from them. We’ve got a better goal difference and they’ve played two more games than us."
