Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe has confirmed that highly rated young goalkeeper Michael Cooper is not for sale according to reports by Plymouth Live.

The 20-year-old Exeter-born stopper is being eased into first team action but he has impressed in the handful of appearances which he has made this season.

Should Cooper continue to shine when given the opportunity in the first team by Argyle boss Lowe, scouts from higher division clubs are likely to be alerted but it is understood that the youngster is not for sale according to his manager.

Cooper has been on the books at Home Park for the best part of a decade after joining Arygle as a scholar. The player made his first team debut in a 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers in October 2017, coming off the bench to replace the injured Kyle Letheran. The teenager has since gone on to add a further six appearances to his tally.

This season has seen Cooper appear for Argyle on four occasions and he has kept two clean sheets in victories over Leyton Orient in the Carabao Cup and Swindon Town in the Leasing.com Trophy.

The youngster may have to bide his time for further first team outings with Argyle having not qualified for the latter stages of the Leasing.com Trophy.
