Sky Bet League One promotion hopefuls Plymouth Argyle have completed the signing of goalkeeper Harry Burgoyne on a season-long loan from English Premier League-bound club Wolverhampton Wanderers according to the Plymouth Herald.

The 21-year-old Ludlow-born stopper has been on the books at Molineux for the last nine years, however, he is yet to be given regular first team football by his club.

Burgoyne has made just eight senior appearances for Wolves and his chances for breaking into the starting XI have been made all the more difficult following the club’s promotion from the Sky Bet Championship this term.

With Burgoyne again set to miss out on regular football next season at Molineux, it has been reported that Plymouth Argyle have offered the youngster the opportunity to fill their goalkeeping void and he will spend the entire 2018/2019 campaign with The Pilgrims.

Argyle loaned keeper Remi Matthews from Norwich City last season and his return to Carrow Road means that new arrival Burgoyne is likely to be fielded in the side regularly by manager Derek Adams.

Burgoyne’s career to date has not got off the ground. His loan move to Argyle is his fifth after spending time with Lowestoft Town, Corby Town, AFC Telford United and Barnet and the young keeper has made just 22 outings for those clubs combined.

The uncertainty surrounding Burgoyne’s long term future at parent club Wolves could mean that his time at Plymouth Argyle could be used to put himself in the shop window and temporary boss Adams is one man who he will want to impress.
