Sittingbourne forward Harry Taylor has joined Swedish club Ostersunds on trial.
Taylor, who signed for the Brickies this summer after leaving Millwall, has three months to earn a deal with the Allsvenskan outfit.
Bourne boss Chris Lynch said: "He's been offered the trial with a view to signing a contract if he does well.
"We fully support him in that.
"We want to see our lads progress and Ostersunds play at the highest level in Sweden.
"From what I understand, they knew of him at Millwall and were aware he had signed for us.
"A report went back from our first pre-season friendly, against Tonbridge, and they liked what they heard.
"Harry's a good player and we don't want to lose him but we've got a big squad and have the players to cover."
Taylor is the second Brickies player to go on trial at Ostersunds in the past five years.
The first, striker Joe Taylor, was invited over in February 2014, when they were in the Swedish second tier.
They were largely unknown in England at the time but that changed in 2018 when they beat Arsenal in a Europa League tie at the Emirates Stadium.
Ostersunds, ninth in the Allsvenskan, have an English manager in Ian Burchnall and last month signed former Maidstone captain Blair Turgott on a three-year contract.
Turgott made his league debut from the bench in a 1-1 draw with Sundsvall on Saturday.
