The 22-year-old former West Brom man is manager Alan Knill's first signing since arriving at Plainmoor.

''Joss is a big, powerful player who can also pass the ball," Knill told the club's official website. ''I first came across him when he was at West Brom and I've watched him grow up from there.

''He has always been someone that I thought I'd like to sign and never really had the opportunity. Whenever my teams have played against Joss, I've always thought he was a good player.

"When I became aware he was available, it was an easy decision for me."

Labadie, who has made 25 appearances this season, will be involved when the Gulls welcome Oxford this Saturday.

Torquay are two points above the relegation zone having not won since January 28.

ave to go for Everton myself. Leon Osman looks like everyone's mate down the pub. Leighton Baines can't take himself too seriously with his dodgy haircut. Steven Piennar looks like he'd cry if you were nasty to him. And Tim Howard looks like he'd give you the most perfect man-hug you could ever imagine.
