Ben Purrington: Attracting interest from a number of clubs

Purrington has been earning rave reviews at Home Park after breaking into the Argyle first team at the end of December.

The highly-rated left-back has made 11 appearances for the Pilgrims after making his debut in the Boxing Day win away to Oxford United.

The 17-year-old has been nominated for the League Two Apprentice of the Year award and has also been tipped to win a call-up to the England Under-18 squad.

Purrington's progress has not gone unnoticed higher up the football pyramid with the likes of Liverpool, Aston Villa, Southampton, Reading, Brighton, Huddersfield and Bournemouth all keeping tabs on the player.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
