Notts County Football Club can confirm that Joss Labadie has completed a switch to Torquay United on a free transfer.
Labadie had initially joined the Gulls on loan but a deal was struck ahead of the transfer deadline to make the move permanent.
The 23-year-old became a popular figure at Plainmoor last term when he scored four goals in seven appearances before being recalled to the County squad.
Limited game time in the Black and White stripes this season led to another loan stint down south at the beginning of January, which has seen the former Tranmere Rovers midfielder impress over three games.
The Sky Bet League 2 outfit was eager to secure his services beyond the one-month loan and, with Labadie’s Notts deal up at the end of the season, the club has allowed him to secure his future with Torquay.
Labadie arrived at Meadow Lane in the summer of 2012 and has made a total of 50 appearances across all competitions, scoring on three occasions.
Everyone at the club would like to thank Joss for his efforts and wish him the best of luck with the Gulls, where he will team up with former Magpies Kevin Nicholson, Krystian Pearce and Karl Hawley.
