Plymouth Argyle have struggled to adjust to life in League One, winning just 1 of their opening 6 matches. After finishing second and getting promoted last season, manager Derek Adams strengthened his squad by bringing in no fewer than 13 new players to the club.
One player that the club were linked but in recent days look to set to miss out on is free agent Josh Wright. After leaving Gillingham, the midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Southend but that move is still up in the air, with ‘Shrimps’ manager Phil Brown waiting for the good ahead that the necessary funds are available to sign the player.
According to The Herald, Plymouth are still interested in Josh Wright but with his future up in the air, the club should turn their attentions to other free agent and former Premier League player Jay Spearing.
Jay Spearing – The midfielder left Bolton Wanderers at the end of last season after failing to agree terms on a new contract, leaving him looking for a new club.
Having started his professional career at Liverpool, Spearing made his competitive first team debut in the Champions League against PSV Eindhoven, before making loan moves to Leicester City and Bolton Wanderers respectively in the 2010 and 2012-2013 seasons.
Following his loan move to Bolton he made his move permanent in 2013 and stayed at the club 4 years.
With plenty of experience under his belt and having played at the highest level of club football the Champions League, Spearing could bring experience to the Plymouth ranks which could help the club move up the League One table.
