Ben Greenhalgh has been released by National League South club Dartford.
Frontman Greenhalgh has had limited opportunities at Princes Park since manager Steve King took over in October.
The former Maidstone man has enjoyed two successive one-month loans with Dartford’s league rivals Tonbridge – although he was ineligible for the Darts’ 3-0 success over Tonbridge last month.
Dartford manager Steve King said: “He has been out on loan and he has done well.
“He has done well but we have done well during that period as well and I’ve decided he does not feature in my future plans, so we have let him go.”
"I hoped I’d never have to say this but my time is up at @dartfordfc," Greenhalgh said on Twitter.
"It’s been a pleasure to play for the club and I would like to thank Adam (Flanagan) and Jamie (Coyle, the former joint-managers) for bringing me into Dartford and to all the fans that welcomed me.
"Princes Park, it's been a pleasure."
Greenhalgh made 62 appearances and scored seven goals for Dartford.
While playing for Angels, Greenhalgh has played nine times, netting on his debut in a 2-1 win over St Albans. Greenhalgh is now widely expected to join Steve McKimm's team on a permanent basis.
Tonbridge are 18th in the league, one point clear of the relegation zone, while Dartford are in seventh.
Dartford have also announced this week Norman Wabo has gone on an initial one-month loan to Isthmian Premier Division club Cheshunt, while Ryan Hayes has signed for Isthmian South East side Sevenoaks on a dual-registration basis.
