Sky Bet League Two side Plymouth Argyle have confirmed that midfielder Graham Carey will be leaving Home Park this summer, following the expiry of his contract at the Devon club.
The 30-year-old signed for the Pilgrims from Ross County in 2015, and instantly hit the ground running at Home Park, scoring 12 goals in all competitions as Derek Adams’ side reached the League Two play-off final.
The Irishman then helped Argyle win automatic promotion to League One the following year, before playing another influential role in another impressive campaign for the Pilgrims in 2017/18, where they narrowly missed out on a play-off spot.
Things turned for the worse for Argyle last season, and despite being one of their standout performers once again, Carey’s six goals and 11 assists were unable to save the club from relegation back down to League Two.
With Ryan Lowe becoming the new manager of Argyle after arriving from Bury, the club have now announced that despite offering him a new deal, Carey will be leaving Home Park this summer, having 49 goals in 197 games for the club.
Despite an improved offer to remain at Home Park, Graham Carey has decided to move on to another challenge.

This is a massive blow for Argyle, as Carey would have flourished under Ryan Lowe’s style of play and brand of football.
He has been a fantastic servant for the Pilgrims, and on a free transfer, he will be a fantastic signing for anyone out there.
He has so much quality on the ball and could easily fit into a top-half League One side.
