Plymouth Argyle have opted against commenting on the increasing speculation that Bury manager Ryan Lowe has agreed to become the club’s new boss.
Argyle have been searching for a new manager since former boss Derek Adams was relieved of his duties at Home Park late last month.
Bury’s promotion-winning manager Lowe has strongly been linked with the vacancy with the Lancashire club currently in turmoil off the field. It has been suggested that the 40-year-old has agreed to take up the position of Plymouth Argyle manager, however, the club have refused to comment on the speculation.
Lowe was handed his first permanent managerial role by Bury 12 months ago following a spell as a caretaker. The likeable Liverpudlian has transformed The Shakers from a team which were relegated from Sky Bet League One with a whimper to a side which have won an immediate promotion back to the third tier this season, playing some hugely entertaining football in the process.
A similar job is required at Plymouth Argyle. The Greens were relegated to Sky Bet League Two this season after finishing 21st on goal difference and the club will be now aiming for an immediate promotion themselves just as Bury craved 12 months ago.
Lowe has taken charge of Bury on 81 occasions and has won 34 of those matches while he has guided The Shakers to second place in Sky Bet League Two.
