Plymouth Argyle midfielder George Cooper has revealed his delight at staying with the Pilgrims until the end of the current campaign.
The 23-year-old is currently on loan from Peterborough United, and with rumours that the midfielder could be recalled this month by the League One side, Pilgrims manager Ryan Lowe has revealed that Cooper won’t be going anywhere this month.
Speaking to PlymouthLive, Cooper said: “I spoke to the Gaffer and he told me ‘You will be here until the end of the season’ and I was happy with that.”
The midfielder signed on loan in the summer and has been a regular in the Plymouth side this season, despite dropping out of the team due to the form of Danny Mayor and Antoni Sarcevic.

However, the energetic midfielder found himself reinstated to the starting XI during December when Callum MFadzean picked up an injury that has kept him out of the team since, and Cooper has filled in at left wing-back, where he has continued his good form.
The loanee even managed to pick up an assist at the weekend, where his delivery from a wide free-kick found Niall Canavan at the back post, who found the back of the net with a powerful header.
Cooper has been excellent when playing for Plymouth this season, and the central midfielder has been consistent no matter where Lowe has chosen to play him, whether it be at left wing-back or in central midfield.
The 23-year-old has been playing with a smile on his face this season as he looks to be back enjoying his football, and he has been handed the opportunity to shine by Lowe.
