National League side Torquay United have signed former Mansfield midfielder Simon Heslop on non-contract terms.
The 28-year-old was a free agent after being released by the Stags in May.
He made 30 appearances for the League Two club in all competitions last season, and has also played for Oxford, Stevenage, Tamworth and Halifax.
"He's someone that Paul Cox and John Ramshaw know and we're delighted to have him to take a closer look at him," said director of football Dean Edwards.
"He's also a player with plenty of know-how and experience at a higher level."
Heslop is manager Cox's 15th summer signing and could make his debut against Woking on Tuesday night.
