Maidstone United make striker Jay May available but ex-Chelsea man Seth Twumasi is staying

Striker Jay May is free to leave Maidstone.

May, United’s top scorer for the past two seasons, has been made available for transfer or loan.

The 30-year-old started the campaign on loan at Hastings after a calf injury.

He returned last month but has barely featured.

Stones boss Jay Saunders, who signed Jamar Loza last night, said: “Jay’s always had his knockers but he’s been great for us.

“I still feel he can offer us something but I didn’t think we’d get him enough game time and at his age it’s better to be playing regular football.

“He’s had a few calls. It’s just making sure he can agree something that’s right for him.”

Former Newport right-back Seth Twumasi could be with Maidstone at least until the January transfer window.

A one-off appearance in the Kent Senior Cup defeat at Bromley inadvertently scuppered a move to League 2 Cheltenham and United are ready to make the most of the ex-Chelsea youngster.

Saunders said: “Seth had agreed something with Cheltenham, he was about to sign but because he’d signed forms with us he was no longer a free agent and the deal couldn’t go through.

“They might still be interested in January but for the time being he’ll be playing for us."
