Daily Update

Defender Ben Gibson has joined Argyle on an initial three month loan from Middlesborough. There is a short interview with the 18-year-old, who featured for the Pilgrims in the 1-0 victory over Saltash yesterday evening, up on the official site. At the bottom of that article, it's revealed that Peter Reid has "decided" against signing Andres Gurrieri to a permanent contract. Presumably this is because some compensation is due to the Argentine's former club in Uruguay. Whatever the explanation, it's a bit of a blow as Argyle are now left short of options on the left wing. Maybe they still have Joe Holt's phone number?

There's more transfer confusion surrounding Warren Feeney. This afternoon Oldham claimed that the player was only prepared to join the Pilgrims on loan and had turned down the offer of a permanent move. It came as a surprise, therefore, when an interview with the Northern Ireland international appeared on skysports.com with Feeney claiming that he was still dead keen on moving to Plymouth (due to the city's close proximity to Wales, apparently). According to Feeney, Oldham have caused the hitch by deciding at the eleventh hour that they wanted him to leave permanently rather than on loan. It looks like this one has some more to run - there should be more on the story in the local press tomorrow.

There's a new interview with Conor Hourihane up on Argyle World. There's not much of note in it, but he seems a nice chap and is looking forward to playing some first team football this season.

Romain has also been speaking to Sky Sports, revealing that he'd like to stay at Home Park beyond the coming season. Sky also have the scoop that Rory Fallon has signed a one month deal with Yeovil Town, although they've slightly blotted their copybook by screwing up the headline.
