Torquay United sign Millwall defensive prospect Paul Rooney on loan

Paul Rooney comes to Plainmoor after making his Millwall debut in a recent EFL Trophy tie against Luton

National League club Torquay United have signed Millwall centre-back Paul Rooney on a 28-day youth loan.

The 19-year-old has played one first-team game for the Lions since joining them from Irish club Bohemians in July.

"He's a player I came across when on a scouting mission a few weeks ago," Torquay player-manager Kevin Nicholson said. "It's a great opportunity for him to come and test himself."

Rooney could make his Gulls debut in Saturday's FA Trophy tie at Braintree.
