Torquay have offered a contract to striker Elliot Benyon following his departure from Southend.

The 25-year-old, who finished the season on loan at Plainmoor, is wanted by Gulls boss Alan Knill as he looks to replace Ryan Jarvis who has moved to York.

"We're not the only club interested in Elliot, so we'll see what happens with him," Knill told the Herald Express.

Meanwhile, Knill also confirmed that assistant manager Shaun Taylor is leaving the club following the arrival of Chris Bass.
