Plymouth Argyle manager Peter Reid has added Tottenham Hotspur's young attacking midfielder Dean Parrett to his squad on loan until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old, who made four appearances for Aldershot last term, has also featured throughout England youth level and has scored four goals in 11 outings for the Under 19s.

Reid, who already has fellow Spurs goalkeeper David Button at his disposal, was delighted with the capture.

He said: “Harry Redknapp and Tim Sherwood have helped me out; Dean's a young attacking midfield player who has played for England, so it's a good prospect for us.

"I just feel we need somebody to open things up in the middle of the park and I'm hoping Dean will be the man and I'm sure he will be.

"I'm excited to be working with the boy and hopefully he can get on the pitch and do the job for us."


Yannick Bolasie



Meanwhile, Plymouth winger Yannick Bolasie will need surgery after an injury he picked up pre-season was more serious than first thought.

The midfielder, who extended his contract with the Pilgrims by two years, had been looking impressive prior to the start of the season but suffered the knee injury during the 8-0 romp of Saltash United after coming on as a substitute in the second half.

It first appeared to be an ankle injury, but it now after having a scan; it showed that it was the knee that sustained the most damage.

Argyle manager Peter Reid said: "There might be surgery, we've had the scan results and will decide what to do."
