Plymouth Argyle boss John Sheridan has been impressed by trialist midfielder Olly Norburn.
The former Leicester City academy player saw his Bristol Rovers contract terminated early last year and he has since been on trial with Argyle.
The Devonshire club have been searching for a replacement for Conor Hourihane who left the club for Barnsley earlier in the summer.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Sheridan stated: “He’s got lots of things that I really like in his game.He’s got a lovely range of passing; he’s a good age; a good size; he’s got all the attributes I am looking for in a midfield player. It’s down to Ollie.”
“He’s a bit of a different player to Conor, but the way I’m going to play this season might be a little but different,”
“I’ll be looking for someone who is going to sit in that central [midfield] area. I’ve got Dominic [Blizzard] who I want to come back and have a lot better season than last season; I want Tyler [Harvey] to believe he can really play in there. If I bring Ollie in, you’ve got four there to play in the two central areas.”
Fellow trialist Duncan Capriotti, a midfielder from the United States, will not be offered a contract after participating in Plymouth’s pre-season training.
