YORK City midfielder Nicky Wroe has joined Blue Square Premier rivals Torquay United for an undisclosed fee, believed to be a modest five-figure sum.

Wroe, 22, declared that he no longer wanted to play for the Minstermen earlier this month despite the KitKat Crescent club exercising an option to retain his services for an extra season.

The former Barnsley player started 27 games and scored ten goals last season.
