Plymouth Argyle transfer round-up: Familiar face returns, Update emerges on forward linked with Pilgrims switch

Published

on

Plymouth Argyle will be looking to make a positive start to the 2021/22 season in League One under the management of Ryan Lowe. 

The Pilgrims finished 18th in the third tier standings last term, and the club’s supporters will be hoping their side can show much-needed improvement after a disappointing run of results in League One last term.

It’s set to be an interesting summer ahead for Plymouth, as they look to add to their squad to challenge higher up in the League One table moving forwards.

Ryan Lowe’s side are set to take on Rotherham United at the New York Stadium in their season opener on Saturday 7th August, in what is likely to be a tricky test up against Paul Warne’s men.

We take a look at the latest transfer news at Plymouth Argyle in the last week.

Bolton arrives 

Plymouth have recently confirmed that they have completed a deal to sign James Bolton for an undisclosed fee from League One rivals Portsmouth.

Bolton has signed a two-year deal with the Pilgrims, and primarily operates as a central defender, although he is capable of filling in at right-back if required.

Bolton made 53 appearances in total for Pompey, and will be hoping that he can make a positive impact with his new side, as they plan for the upcoming League One campaign, which is set to get underway in August.

Forward set to leave club amid Plymouth interest 

It has recently been confirmed that Paul Mullin will leave Cambridge United at the end of his contract this month.

Mullin has previously been linked (The Sun on Sunday, 9th May, page 59) with a move to Plymouth Argyle, having scored 33 goals in 50 appearances for Cambridge, as they won promotion into League One last term.

But they face a considerable amount of competition to land his signature this summer though, with the likes of Middlesbrough and Bristol Rovers being just some of the teams keen on reaching an agreement with the forward.

Familiar face returns 

Jordan Houghton has returned to Plymouth Argyle, after a five-year spell away from the Pilgrims.

Houghton had previously been on the books with the League One club whilst on loan from Chelsea back in 2016, but has signed permanently for the club this summer, after being released by MK Dons.

He’ll be hoping he can make a positive impact relatively swiftly with Ryan Lowe’s side this term.
