TORQUAY UNITED cap­tain Court­ney Richards is being chased by a host of League One clubs.

The 23-year-old mid­fielder is wanted by Fleet­wood Town and Wal­sall, among oth­ers, in the third tier.

Richards is in his third sea­son with the Na­tional League Gulls and took the arm­band in the sum­mer fol­low­ing An­gus Mac­Don­ald’s trans­fer to Cham­pi­onship side Barnsley.

Boss Kevin Ni­chol­son has de­scribed the for­mer Brighton & Hove Al­bion player as a ‘war­rior’ – and now a move to the Foot­ball League looks on the cards with clubs mak­ing the most of his £10,000 buy­out clause.

It would be an­other blow for Torquay, who are in the lower reaches of the ta­ble, fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of striker Nathan Blis­sett to Ply­mouth Argyle last week.
