Torquay United have extended the loan of Norwich City defender Michee Efete until the end of the campaign.
The National League club’s head coach, Gary Owers, confirmed last week that the Gulls were in talks with City about an extension. The Canaries have now confirmed a deal has been agreed, ahead of a trip to promotion-chasing Wrexham on Saturday.
The 20-year-old had the one-year option in his contract activated by Norwich last summer so is entering the final six months of his deal.
Playing as a central defender and a right-back, Efete has made 14 appearances for bottom-of-the-table Torquay so far this season, having also spent two months on loan at Icelandic side Breidablik last summer.
Having featured as a wing-back recently, Owers told Devon Live: “Michee carries the ball really well – he just runs past people more than he beats them. Sometimes he takes an extra touch and runs into a blind alley, but if he can get his head up a bit more, he can cause some real damage.”
