Hawley, who has penned a two-year contract with the Gulls, was a free agent following his departure from Scunthorpe, while Derby striker Ball has joined on a two-month loan deal.

Knill told the club's official website: "I've signed Karl Hawley and Callum Ball, which gives us four strikers and I'm delighted to have them.

"I know Karl really well from when I had him at Scunthorpe and he has always scored goals in his career.

"We've been looking for a different type of player to play with Elliot (Benyon) and Ash (Yeoman). We were let down on some but, all of a sudden, Callum has become available.

"I didn't think we'd have a chance of signing him but, fortunately for us, Derby County manager Nigel Clough has allowed him to move.

"Callum feels it will be a good move for himself and we're delighted to have players of this calibre come to Torquay United. Callum is initially here on a youth loan and we will look at it again in October."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
