Top scorer Norman Sylla is set to leave Redditch United to seize the chance to make his name in Europe.
An unnamed Greek club wants the French striker and Redditch confirmed they are in talks over a fee.
Reds manager Rod Brown says the news was a bolt from the blue after Sylla's agent has apparently been touting his services.
Sylla cost Redditch £3,500 last season from Tamworth and still has a year left on his contract.
Redditch would certainly want to recoup their outlay, plus his signing-on fee, but they are wary after the player admitted he did not know the name of the team with whom his agent had linked him. The Nationwide North club have already vetoed an attempt from Greece to get international clearance from the English authorities for Sylla to play there.
Brown said: "It's a shame because I think Norman has been given some bad advice but at the same time we would not stop the lad if he wanted to go.
"Norman says it's a good offer from a Greek First Division club but he couldn't tell us the name of the club so that's baffling. We would want a fee, whoever it is."
Brown says Sylla will no longer be part of his plans but he has already moved to fill the gap in the strikeforce by re-signing Paul Moore.
Moore, the former Stourbridge and Telford United goal-getter, had left the Valley Stadium last season after being unable to win a regular place in the side and joined Aberystwyth Town.
The Reds have also completed the protracted transfer of Willenhall Town centreback Mark Creighton for a four-figure sum. Creighton, too, returns for a second spell at the Valley Stadium.
Paul Holleran will let battle commence for Halesowen Town's defensive ranks after making Stuart Pierpoint his latest signing.
The Yeltz have secured the 23-year-old centre-back from Sutton Coldfield Town after he has impressed in pre-season.
Holleran has already snapped up defender Steve Farmer from Nuneaton Borough while last season's centre-back pairing Steve Pope and Niki Preston combined forcefully last term to leave Town with the equal fourth-best goals-against record in the Southern Premier.
Holleran stressed a fight for places will be essential if Halesowen are to improve on last term's play-off near-miss, while Pierpoint's flexibility will be another plus.
"There's good competition at the back and that's what we need," said Holleran. " Stuart is a big, strong lad, who can play in a four or a three so he is definitely versatile."
Halesowen head to Boldmere St Michaels on Saturday for their final friendly.
Jamie Bailey has become a fourth summer recruit as Evesham United continue the countdown to their firstever appearance on the Southern Premier stage.
Striker Bailey, from Midland Alliance side Studley, has impressed on trial and been rewarded with a deal with the Robins.
While Richard Ball, Jermaine Clarke and newcomer Jae Martin might be the firstchoice forwards, Evesham manager David Busst considers 26-year-old Bailey as an alternative on the bench.
Martin, snapped up from Moor Green, is likely to miss the first week of the season after picking up an ankle injury.
