Aston Villa have ended their interest in Torquay United youngster Liam Prynn.

The Express & Star says the £50,000 move is off after the young Cornishman apparently suffered a bout of homesickness.

United's Head of Youth Geoff Harrop revealed: "Liam just couldn't settle up there.

"Plenty of people from both clubs tried to help, and Villa did their best - they've been brilliant about the whole thing.

"But Liam just wasn't happy there."
