Plymouth Argyle’s squad is looking decidedly thin right now and has done ever since Derek Adams announced his retained list. The Pilgrims finished seventh in League One this season, one place outside the top six and a place in the play-offs, but it was some achievement given where Argyle were at Christmas time. Back in December, they were rock bottom of the League One table, but an astonishing second half to the campaign saw the Pilgrims climb and narrowly miss out on a play-off place. Since then, Adams has announced the departures of nine players from Home Park, which suggests a busy summer of transfer activity is in store for the Pilgrims. However, there are still 19 first team players that are either contracted to the club, or mulling over Argyle’s offer of a new contract for next season and possibly beyond. But of those 19, who would you keep? And who would you sell? We have put together a gadget that lets you decide. … [Read more...] about Who should Plymouth Argyle keep or sell in the transfer window?
Plymouth Argyle are plotting a move for Bristol Rovers right-back Daniel Leadbitter. The Plymouth Herald reports that Pilgrims boss Derek Adams is keen on signing the 27-year-old who out of contract at the Memorial Stadium next month.

Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams will have the job of picking a new club captain following Luke McCormick’s departure. Goalkeeper McCormick was seen as the ideal man for the role by Adams, given his long affinity with the club. But the Scottish manager opted not to offer the 34-year-old a new contract and as such will need to appoint a new man in the role as captain. McCormick missed the vast majority of the 2017/18 season because of injury, with vice-captain Gary Sawyer being given the role in his absence. Sawyer was ever-present for the Pilgrims this campaign but he is out of contract next month. Adams has offered Sawyer a new deal but there is no guarantees that he will sign on.
