Torquay eye up a move for Ade Akinbiyi

Ade Akinbiyi
Akinbiyi was once signed by Leicester for 5m

Torquay United are interested in signing Notts County striker Ade Akinbiyi, BBC Spotlight understands.

The 35-year-old former Leicester and Burnley striker moved to the Magpies last September.

During his time at Meadow Lane, Akinbiyi has made eight appearances for the League Two club, six of which have been as a substitute.

The former Nigeria international has moved for a total of more than £11.5m during his career.

Torquay are suffering from a shortage of strikers at present following an injury to Scott Rendell (broken arm), and the departure of Tim Sills to Stevenage.
