Sam Sherring is set to remain with Torquay United for the season.

The AFC Bournemouth defender joined the Gulls on loan in early-October, with the deal later extended.

Now, Gary Johnson’s side will be able to call on the 20-year-old for the remainder of the campaign, following a further extended agreement with the Cherries.

Johnson told Torquay’s website: “Sam has done fantastic since he’s been with us. He’s been a major part of our success so far and I’m pleased to say that he, along with Adam (Randell), are enjoying their football, enjoying the first-team experience they are gaining.

“Hopefully Sam will carry on enjoying his football with us.”
