Returning defender Mat Mitchel-King may not be the only signing Dartford make this week.
Mitchel-King, 30, penned a new deal at Princes Park on Tuesday night and now Darts boss Tony Burman is back on the transfer trail.
He said: "I’ve got a couple of other players who we’re looking to bring in and I’m speaking to one at the moment. Hopefully, something might happen this week.
"He’s got a lot of choices but I’m hoping he’ll choose us.
"Yes, these players would like to stay full-time if they can, but the closer it gets to the season, if it’s not working for them, they might have to consider the part-time option.
"If they do, I’ll be delighted.”
Mitchel-King joined Dartford last summer and experienced a turbulent first few months as Burman’s side fell into relegation trouble.
But when Rory McAuley joined on loan from Cambridge United in January, Mitchel-King looked more assured alongside him.
McAuley’s arrival on a permanent deal last month means the two will pick up where they left off when the new Conference Premier season starts in August.
Burman said: "There’s a partnership already there. Rory’s come in, which is a major signing for us and with Kingy alongside him now, things are a lot better.
"Kingy’s a lot fitter than what he was last year. He’s come back fitter, he’s done a lot through the summer when he’s been out of the country and he’s worked with us.
"I think we got a lot better from him after Christmas, with all due respect."
