Derby County's Ben Pringle ends Torquay loan stint

Ben Pringle
Pringle has played 23 games for Derby

Derby County midfielder Ben Pringle is returning to Pride Park after cutting short his loan spell at Torquay United.

The 21-year-old joined the League Two side on a month-long deal on 4 March and has played five games.

But Gulls boss Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon Pringle is eager to re-join the Rams: "He wants to fight for his place and we can't stand in the way.

"That's the kid's prerogative. He's a smashing kid, he's made of the right stuff and has done very well for us."

Buckle added: "He wants to go back. I'm a great believer that once someone says 'no it's not for me', I call it a day straight away."
