Hayes and Yeading manager Phil Babb admitted this week that the departure of Louie Soares from the club was based on financial reasons.
Soares had netted three times for United this season and leaves with the club ninth in the Conference South.
"Unfortunately for a club like ours financial restraints play a big part in who I can bring in and how many players I can have around the squad," said Babb. "There is no doubting Louie's ability it was just that he was one of the club's highest earners and we just couldn't afford to keep him to be honest.
However, Babb believes the door is now open for someone to fill the void left by Soares.
"As regards to looking for replacements and to replace him per se, it is going to be difficult. But it gives the opportunity for a younger player like a Kamaron English to prove their worth of a place in the starting line-up."
In Soares' absence, Hayes and Yeading have suffered consecutive cup defeats including last nights round two Middlesex Senior Cup 3-0 loss away to Harefield United.
United also fell to a late Barnet winner in the FA Trophy first round although Babb was pleased with his sides performance.
"It was a fantastic performance from our boys," said Babb. "They created many chances to score goals but just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. From our point of view it was a very convincing performance but it certainly was not a deserved result in respect of the hard work and efforts the boys had put in. For 89 minutes you couldn't have told which side was which."
