Torquay United have given midfielder James McQuilkin a contract until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old has been at Plainmoor on and has played seven times for the Gulls in the Conference.
The former Northern Ireland Under-21 international was released by Walsall in the summer of 2014 and also spent time at Hereford and Czech side Zlin.
The Gulls still have Aaron Dawson and Ollivier Gueguen on non-contract terms.
Torquay manager Chris Hargreaves told BBC Sport last month that he on full-time deals.
