Torquay United have taken Crewe Alexandra defender Thierry Audel on a trial ahead of a potential loan move.

The former Macclesfield player will join up with the club this week for training, and then presumably this time next week, or the week after, manager Chris Hargreaves will make a decision on whether to proceed with the deal.

Of course if the decision is taken ahead of the transfer window closing we can loan him, subject to agreement, for the remainder of the season, but if the deal doesn’t go through until February we will be limited to a maximum of a 93 day emergency loan.

27 year old Audel can play either at right back or at centre half and has only made one start so far this season, and one appearance as a substitute.
