Maidstone boss Jay Saunders is in talks to sign a League 2 centre-half on loan.
Saunders, pictured, wants to strengthen his defence ahead of the home game against Burgess Hill on Saturday and is also interested in a player who won the Ryman League, Premier Division with Billericay last season.
United’s need to sign a defender increased on Wednesday when Gavin Greenfield quit the club due to his Army commitments.
Saunders said: "We’ve spoken to a League 2 club who are happy to let someone come in on loan, it’s just down to the player whether he wants to drop down. There’s also a lad who won the Ryman Premier last season."
Maidstone are waiting on the fitness of Deren Ibrahim (groin), Shaun Welford (ankle), Alex Flisher (knee), Tim Olorunda (knee) and Stuart King (knee) going into the Burgess Hill game.
United are four points clear at the top of Ryman League, Division 1 South, but second-placed Dulwich Hamlet have three games in hand.
Meanwhile, Saunders believes winger Ben Greenhalgh could sign for Scottish Premier League club Inverness following a successful trial.
He said: "He enjoyed himself up there and wants the chance to play full-time football. We wish him all the best if it happens."
