Jervis, who was released from Ross County, was brought to the Scottish club by Adams at the beginning of last season.

Adams told the Plymouth Herald: “Obviously I took Jake to Ross County at the beginning of last season, but then I left the club and he didn’t then get the opportunities there he perhaps wanted.”

Wolverhampton born Jervis, who turned professional in 2010, has played for numerous English sides, including Notts County, Swindon Town and Portsmouth, before his move to Scotland last summer.

Adams added: “Jake’s played a lot in England and been on loan a number of times at a number of clubs.

“Jake’s a player who can take us up the pitch, he’s strong, he’s agile and he can score goals.”

The 23-year-old scored four goals from 28 appearances for Ross County in the Scottish Premier League, and Adams also added that; “He can be both a targetman for us and he can run in behind defences.”

Jervis arrives at Home Park and will team up with fellow new signing, Gary Sawyer, who arrived on Thursday.

The 30-year-old defender spent eight seasons with the Pilgrims from 2002 having come through the youth setup at Home Park.

His return came after two seasons with Bristol Rovers and three seasons in League One with Leyton Orient, who were relegated at the end of last season

Adams said: “Gary was a player who I had seen previously playing for Leyton Orient before I came to Argyle, so when the opportunity came we took it.
