Manchester United teenager Jack Rudge has left the club on loan to join League Two club Torquay United for the remainder of February.
The 19-year-old agreed on Friday to move to Plainmoor for a month, and arrived at the club on Monday as the Gulls strive to steer themselves out of the relegation zone.
Chris Hargreaves' are in danger of dropping out of the Football League, currently second from bottom, although they are in the relegation zone only on goal difference. The club have also moved to sign Joss Labadie until the end of the season in the hope of propelling them up table.
Rudge is a member of Warren Joyce's Manchester United under-21 squad and signed his first professional contract last year having been with the Old Trafford club since he was only aged six.
The midfielder has yet to make an appearance for the Manchester United first-team and is one of several players to have been loaned out in order to further their respective educations away from the club.
