But the 30-year-old had been largely un-enthusiastic about a move to League Two and, with Pilgrims manager Tony Pullis also keen on a loan deal with the striker, it seems likely that Thordarson's bid is now set to end in disappointment.
Thordarson paired Kelvin Wilson - a defender - with Jake Sheridan - a winger - in attack for Saturday's trip to Wycombe Wanderers and today admitted that the situation is getting desperate.
"You could see the difference up front on Saturday," he told the County official website.
"Wycombe had two quality forwards who score goals in (Tommy) Mooney and (Kevin) Betsy.
"We had Jake and Kelvin up front who gave their all, but right now we all know we need a forward to bang the ball into the net."
