REID LURES GIBSON TO PLYMOUTH

plymouth argyle logo Plymouth Argyle have swooped for teenage Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson on a three-month loan deal.

 

Gibson put pen-to-paper yesterday afternoon having featured in Monday's 1-0 friendly win at Saltash United.

 

Argyle manager Peter Reid said: "I thought Ben did really well, so I was delighted with him. Middlesbrough think a lot of him and have kindly let us have him. I think he’ll be a big asset for us."

 

Gibson said: "I already knew about the club, it’s too big to be in League Two and obviously the gaffer was a big selling point for me. He's got great experience and knowledge of the game so I jumped at the chance.

 

"I'm here for three months and I look forward to hopefully playing, and playing well for Argyle, and hopefully being up towards the top of the league."

 

Gibson, 18, is a product of Middlesbrough's youth academy and can operate at left or centre back.

 

He has made one senior substitute appearance for the Teeside club and is an accomplished England under-17 and under-18 international.

 

He will be handed the number 19 shirt.

 

Argentinian Andres Gurrieri will not be offered a deal following an extended trial spell with the Pilgrims.
