torquay united logo New Torquay United boss Martin Ling is hoping for third time lucky when he next speaks to popular Gulls winger Danny Stevens.

Ling has already held talks with out-of-contract Stevens and is hopeful of completing a deal to retain the 24-year-old attacking midfielder this weekend.

The Gulls boss said: “I have spoken to Danny twice now and hoping it will be third time lucky when we next speak in the next 24 hours. I have told him we want him to stay.”


Ling also plans to offer former QPR youngster Joe Oastler the chance to turn his loan stay at Torquay into a permanent deal this week.


The new Gulls boss is hoping to name his assistant manager soon.


Ling said: “I am hoping that this week we will be able to make an announcement.


“It’s important that we get the structure right at the club and, obviously, I need an assistant.”
