FORMER Tranmere midfielder Joss Labadie this week joined League Two strugglers Torquay United on loan until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old has made just six starts for Notts County since moving from Rovers last summer.
Alan Knill, Torquay’s interim manager said: “Joss has always been someone that I thought I’d like to sign and never really had the opportunity. Whenever my teams have played against Joss, I’ve always thought he was a good player.”
Labadie began his career as a trainee at West Brom and had loan spells at Shrewsbury, Cheltenham and Tranmere before joining the Merseyside club full time in the summer of 2010.
Former Rotherham, Bury and Scunthorpe manager Knill is in charge at Torquay until the end of the season after Martin Ling had to temporarily step aside on health grounds.
