Midfielder Lewis announced he was leaving Stones on Wednesday citing “professional and personal reasons.” He joins Dover on a two-year deal.

He was named Maidstone's Supporters’ Player-of-the-Year award at the end of that season before making the move permanent.

Lewis also made 83 appearances for Ebbsfleet having arrived at that club from Wycombe Wanderers .

He has also played for Dagenham & Redbridge, Barnet, Stevenage and Gillingham.

Left-back Debayo is 21 and moved to Cheltenham on a two-year contract after leaving Leicester City at the end of last season.

He had started his career with Fulham and Chelsea before moving to Southampton in 2013.

The Nigerian spent two seasons playing for Leicester's under-23s before joining Cheltenham for whom he has five league appearances this season in addition to two in the EFL Cup.
