Torquay United midfielder Joss Labadie is unlikely to remain at the club following his controversial biting incident, according to Gulls manager Chris Hargreaves.
The 23-year-old was handed a 10-match ban having been found guilty of an alleged bite on Chesterfield player Ollie Banks, compounding a difficult season for Torquay in which they were also relegated from League Two.
"It's unlikely that he will remain with the club," Hargreaves told BBC Sport.
"It's a really unfortunate situation and incident that happened, we lost a good player who would have no doubt helped in our fight."
Torquay finished the 2013-14 campaign at the bottom of the League Two table on 45 points.
