Torquay striker Chris Zebroski has handed in a transfer request for family reasons.

Zebroski, who lives in Swindon, has been offered a contract extension by new Gulls manager Martin Ling, but no longer wants to commute.

"We're disappointed," said Ling. "We've offered Chris an extension to his contract, but he is insistent that now is the right time to move on and we respect his reasons."


He added: "We will now be circulating his name to other clubs and looking for a fee that is right for Torquay United.

"His departure will obviously free up budgetary space and the money will be pumped back into the squad-building process at our club."

Zebroski initially joined Torquay from Wycombe on a season-long loan in 2007. He returned on a temporary basis at the end of 2009, signing a permanent deal shortly afterwards.
