Exeter City striker Richard Logan has agreed a new one-year deal at St James Park.
The 28-year-old has been handed just five starts for the Grecians this season but scored four times in his appearances as a substitute.
His role as an impact player prompted City boss Paul Tisdale to extend his stay at the club, but he wasn't the only manager keen to acquire his signature.
Torquay boss Paul Buckle is a long-time fan of the forward and was reportedly hoping to secure his services for the Gulls if a new contract at Exeter was not agreed.
"I heard a few things about that. Obviously that could have been an option, but I didn't speak to anyone there personally," Logan told the Express & Echo.
"So I didn't know if it was concrete, but when I got an offer from Exeter I was not going to jump ship.
"I didn't play that much this season so I didn't know what was going to happen at the end of the season.
"But when Paul (Tisdale) said he was going to give me another year, I snapped his hand off."
Deals for duo
Meanwhile, winger Elliot Frear and attacking midfielder Chris Shephard have been offered new deals.
Shephard, 20, finished the season on loan at Salisbury where he scored two goals from nine starts and he has made two appearances for the Grecians - both from the bench.
Frear, 19, signed his first pro contract last summer and has made some impressive displays while he has been on loan at Tiverton this term.
City have confirmed strikers Barry Corr and Craig McAllister will be released when their current contracts expire in the summer, as will midfielders Alex Russell, Joe Burnell, Manny Panther and Neil Saunders.
