Plymouth are facing a battle with Scottish side Motherwell for their loanee striker Jamille Matt this summer, according to a report.

Matt, 26, is currently on loan at Plymouth from League One side Fleetwood Town but Plymouth will not be the only club trying to sign the striker permanently this summer.

Fleetwood broke their record transfer fee to sign Matt from Kidderminster Harriers back in 2013, and the striker has 14 goals in 56 league games for the club.

Matt was loaned out to Stevenage earlier this season but didn’t find any form for the club, scoring only once in eight games.  The striker was then loaned to Plymouth in March for a more successful loan spell.

Matt has scored four goals in nine games for Plymouth, helping the club into the play-off places as they finish the season.

The striker’s contract with Fleetwood Town runs out at the end of the season, meaning he will be available on a free transfer.  Plymouth are understood to be leading the race to sign Matt, but Motherwell and Crawley Town are also believed to be interested.

Matt will have to make the decision at the end of the season to remain in English football or make the switch to Scotland.
