'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Torquay still hope to keep Alex target

Torquay United expect to find out within the next week if Crewe Alexandra transfer target Mark Ellis is staying at Plainmoor.

The 23-year-old ex-Bolton Wanderers trainee was originally handed until Thursday to make his final decision. However, interest from a League One club - widely believed to be Crewe - has seen that deadline extended.

"Mark has said the club that's interested in him, he is interested in, so I've said give it another week and see how it pans out," Gulls manager Martin Ling told BBC Sport. "If, in a week's time, this club chasing Mark hasn't met our criteria, Mark will stay here."

As centre-back Ellis is currently under the age of 24, his club would be entitled to a fee if he elects to join another English side.

"Mark has never said that he doesn't want to stay at Torquay United - and Mark didn't say to me yesterday that he doesn't want to stay at Torquay United," Ling continued.

"We've not had a club that has met our valuation of Mark Ellis at this time. That club has go two options, one is to meet our valuation, the other is to take us to a tribunal."
