Mark Ellis will come into a Crewe side that secured promotion to League One last season

Crewe have completed the signing of Torquay defender Mark Ellis for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal after passing a medical at Gresty Road.

Ellis began his career at Exeter before moving on to Bolton, but never made the first-team breakthrough at the Reebok Stadium and returned to Devon on loan with Torquay in 2007, making the move permanent the following summer.

The centre-half, who scored twice against Crewe in a 3-3 draw at Gresty Road during the 2010/11 season, made 98 league appearances for Torquay and scored nine goals.
