Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan has said it is a major boost for the club with the permanent signing of striker Reuben Reid.
Reid, 25, has signed a two year contract with the Pilgrims from League One club Yeovil Town. He spent the season at Home Park last season on loan and made an impression by scoring 21 goals. This has delighted Sheridan.
”You always want to keep your best players, so I’m glad he’s here. After the season he’s had, it’s definitely a boost for us. He wanted to stay here, he’s happy here. He worked hard last season to get 21 goals which is a great achievement.’ ‘said Sheridan.
”Hopefully, he can carry on doing that, that’s the reason we’ve offered him the contract. We believe he can do that.” he added.
Plymouth weren’t the only club interested in Reid, so Sheridan knew it would be a challenge to lure the former Rotherham and Oldham forward to Home Park, but knew Reid is welcome back.
”I have always said that, if you score your goals, people will notice you. I knew other clubs would be watching him. But he made it clear he wanted to stay here as he is happy with the people who are working with him.” said Sheridan.
”It’s a coup for us, and for him to want to stay with us is good. He added other things to his game that we got out of him last season. Hopefully, we will keep on improving him, if he works hard, his ability will take care of itself.” he added.
Reuben Reid started his career at Plymouth before moving on to Rotherham after numerous loan moves.
