Truro City are in talks to sign former Torquay United forward Danny Sullivan.

The 20-year-old left the Gulls by mutual consent earlier this month, having made six substitute appearances since turning professional in 2012.

He has also spent time on loan at Hereford United and Bideford.

"He trained with us on Monday, he looked sharp, and he's eager to prove himself again," Truro City manager and former Torquay player and youth coach Steve Tully told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"He can play up front, in behind, or anywhere along the top line and he's got goals in him.

"He knows the league, so it's not going to be anything new to him and he's a player that can come in and do a job for us."

To accommodate Sullivan's impending arrival City have released central defender Ben Gerring.

He scored two goals in his spell at Treyew Road, one in the 5-0 win against his former club Bideford and one in the

"After the Weymouth game I told Ben I'd like to keep him until the end of the season, but he didn't want to sign a contract," Tully said.

"We've come to the solution that he's the man to make way for another forward-thinking player."

Meanwhile, Bristol Rovers youngster Danny Greenslade has also left the club after his loan spell came to an end.

"We'd have liked to have extended his loan, but because he's done so well the club has taken him back and they want him involved in the first team squad," Tully said.

"We're disappointed, but for Danny it's a step in the right direction for making a career in the professional game."
