Argyle swing open the transfer window with five new signings

Plymouth Argyle have been catching the eyes of many football fans up and down the country this season.

They currently five points clear top of the EFL League one standings and Steven Schumacher’s men are looking the real deal.

Argyle’s transfer business this window, will also have caught the eye of clubs up and down the football league.

Argyle have signed Ben Waine from Wellington Phoenix, Saxon Earley Norwich City, Callum Wight from Blackpool, Tyreik Wright from Aston Vila on a permanent basis and Jay Matete on loan from championship club Sunderland.

All of the new signings featured in Argyle’s last league game against Bolton Wanderers and they all performed well.

Ben Waine scored his first goal for Argyle on Tuesday night against Bristol Rovers in the quarter-finals of the Papa John’s Trophy, the striker already looking like a good signing.

I spoke to the Plymouth Argyle media officer, Charlie Price to get his views on the transfer window so far.

I first asked his opinion on how the transfer window had gone so far and he said:

“I think they are really positive and exciting signings. 

“All the players that have been brought in so far are in their early 20s and we’ve fought off other clubs to sign them.

“It’s all very exciting and we hope they live up the excitement.”

I then asked him, which new signing he thought would be the most influential and he said:

“Really difficult, I think they’ll all have strengths and bring different qualities to the side.

I think it’s clear 3 of the 5 signings are forward, Ben Waine is looking really lively, I think he could be one who could make an impact Callum Wright has also come in really well in the first two games he’s played. 

I finally asked him if he thought Argyle would make any more signings and he said:

“I think not, but you can never say never, because there are things that are out of your control”
