Opinion: Plymouth Argyle should hand second chance to Tottenham Hotspur striker this summer

Plymouth Argyle boss Ian Foster is under pressure to keep the club in the Championship this season and his side are currently sat in 17th place in the table.

Plymouth Argyle chose the 47-year-old as their new manager following Steven Schumacher’s exit to fellow second tier club Stoke City earlier this winter.

Foster, who is from Merseyside, has since won four of his opening 14 games in charge.

Prior to his move to Home Park, he coached in the England youth set-up and most recently in charge of the Under-20’s. One player he knows well from his time with the Three Lions is Tottenham Hotspur striker Dane Scarlett.

Who is this?

Plymouth Argyle should hand Tottenham Hotspur man second Championship chance

The 19-year-old spent the first-half of this term on loan at Ipswich Town but struggled to make an impact with the Tractor Boys.

He was recalled by Spurs in January and is spending the second-half of this campaign back with the Premier League outfit.

However, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Ange Postecoglou let him depart on a temporary basis again and Plymouth would be an ideal home for him.

Despite his struggles at Ipswich, Scarlett is still a promising young talent and has a bright future ahead of him in the game. He scored six goals during a spell at Portsmouth last season.

He needs a place to show what he can do and prove a point and there is no better place to do that than with the Pilgrims under a manager he knows already in Foster.

The teenager would be an exciting addition and playing alongside the likes of Morgan Whittaker and Bali Mumba would make Plymouth an interesting proposition.

One bad loan spell shouldn’t put clubs off signing talent from the top flight. Take Hull City and Liam Delap for example, he didn’t hit the ground running at either Preston North End or Stoke but has since become one of Liam Rosenior’s key men at the MKM Stadium.

Scarlett has played 14 matches already for Spurs’ first-team and that doesn’t happen unless you have something about you. He is also under contract there until June 2027.

He would give Foster more competition and depth up top and would definitely be a smart acquisition if they decide to swoop for him later this year, as long as he can keep the Pilgrims up.
