Maidstone have secured Ross Lafayette on loan for the rest of the season - but they've missed out on Dean Beckwith.
The pair's one-month loan deals from Sutton expired after the 1-0 win over Torquay at the weekend and Stones boss Jay Saunders was hoping to keep both on board.
He's managed to extend Lafayette's stay but Beckwith is back with the U's and could face Maidstone at the Gallagher on Saturday.
Saunders said: "First of all, I'd like to thank Dean, who did well when he was here.
"We didn't get the games we wanted out of him because of postponements but he was a good calming influence who came in and made a real difference. He was a credit to himself.
"It's one where Sutton have got a couple of knocks and they want to keep him around the place.
"I wouldn't say we'll never see him in a Maidstone shirt again but it's not possible at the moment."
As for Lafayette, Saunders added: "I'm just pleased to get Ross done.
"Delano Sam-Yorke is probably the only out-and-out striker we've got so it was important to keep Ross.
"I don't think he had his best game on Saturday but he was still a handful and had a part to play in the goal.
"I think there's more to come from him.
"It's hard for a player coming into a team when you've not won for a long time, plus he hadn't played for a little while at Sutton.
"It's never easy but I think he'll get better with us as well and he's been good in the dressing room."
