Torquay United Football Club is pleased to confirm that Connor Lemonheigh-Evans has signed a long-term loan deal to stay until the end of the season.

The Bristol City loanee, 21, has become an important member of Gary Johnson’s squad since joining in late September.

“I’m very happy that he has chosen to stay despite several clubs, including Football League clubs, wanting to take him on loan,” said Johnson.

“Bristol City gave him the opportunity to make his own decision and I am very pleased to report he has chosen to stay and finish what he came here to do.”
