Branston enjoyed an eight-game spell at Home Park at the start of his career, when he was loaned to the Pilgrims by Leicester.

Since then he has played for 19 clubs in a 15-year career - including Argyle's rivals Torquay.

Recalling his previous stint at the club, the 34-year-old told Plymouth's official website: "I remember doing well down here and enjoying it, but it was just too far away from Leicester for me to live.

"Mentally, it was tough. As a young boy I still had that mentality 'you've got to be around your friends, you've got to be around your girlfriend', that kind of thing.

"Now I'm down because my girlfriend is down here in Devon. It's my home now. My family's down here and it's where I want to be. It's good that I can kick on and hopefully do well here."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
