PLYMOUTH ARGYLE Liverpool defender wings in on loan

argyle logo2013Plymouth Argyle have signed left wing back Adam Lewis from Premier League champions Liverpool on loan until the end of the season.

Lewis, 21, arrives ahead of Crewe at Home Park tomorrow and as George Cooper is ruled out of Ryan Lowe’s League One Pilgrims squad by a knee injury.

The new arrival has been on Lowe and assistant Steve Schumacher’s radar since a behind closed doors friendly win against Liverpool when the pair were the management team at Bury.

Lowe revealed: “We saw Adam in that game and we feel he is the right fit now we have lost George for a while. We have still got Conor (Grant) who can do a fantastic job out there and Byron (Moore) but we felt we wanted someone who can help us defensively and in attack and Adam certainly brings that.

“The fans will see a little aggressive terrier - who will get stuck in around the place. He can get up and down and loves a tackle. He presses very well and has got quality in terms of George Cooper-type quality.

“He predominantly plays wing back but he can also fill that holding midfield role. He can spray a ball around. He’s got a pass on him, great range. He could possibly play in the eight position as well. Hence why we brought him in because he can play in that many positions. He’s a fantastic footballer.

"You don’t sign a long term contract at Liverpool if you’re not any good.”
