James Stevens is staying at Witham Town.
The attacking midfielder rejected a seven-day approach from Ryman League premier division side Billericay.
The approach came in last Friday but Stevens has decided to stay put at the Village Glass Stadium.
“I’ve had a good season so far and, at this moment in time, Witham feels right for me,” he said.
“I like the set-up and the management team are working hard with me, to get the most out of me.
“I’m thankful for that.”
Stevens, who has scored in the last two home games, spoke to Billericay over the weekend before making his decision to stay at Witham.
“I told James I didn’t want him to leave,” said boss Garry Kimble.
“I hoped that the issue would be resolved quickly and the fact it has been is great news for me, James and Witham Town.”
Stevens will miss the next two weeks due to personal commitments, though.
Meanwhile, Kris Newby has signed on loan from Ryman League premier division East Thurrock United.
The prolific scorer will stay with the club until the end of the season.
Witham will look to continue their unbeaten start to the Ryman League division one north season when they travel to Barkingside on Saturday and then host Soham on Monday.
