National League side Torquay have signed Australian defender Giancarlo Gallifuoco on non-contract terms.

The 22-year-old, who has played for his country at under-23 level, previously had spells with Tottenham and Swansea without playing a first-team game.

Gallifuoco's arrival comes on the same day that ex-Paraguay defender Ronald Huth has turned down a contract offer.

"We made an excellent offer which he didn't want to accept," manager Kevin Nicholson said.

"He is a player we like and would like to see more of, and we wish him well for his career short and long term, wherever that maybe."
