Lathrope was out of contract at Plainmoor this summer but, having been an influential player in the club's failed promotion charge this term, he will now look to help the Devon outfit go one better next season.

The 22-year-old, who arrived from Norwich in 2010, is due to put pen to paper later this week.

Gulls boss Martin Ling told the club's official website: "Damon is a scenario where an offer was put on the table and he has been an integral part of what we've done this season.

"I want him to stay and it has always been a logistics thing with Damon, but he has agreed to the new deal which is great news for the club.

"It is always a great barometer of a player's influence by how he is judged in the dressing room and Damon's performances have won him the respect of his team-mates. He allows us to play a certain style of football with his disciplined approach and this new deal is reward for his terrific contribution to the team."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
