The 24-year-old snubbed Morecombe to complete the switch having previously played under Argyle manager John Sheridan at Oldham, and the Pilgrims boss said: "I'm very pleased to have signed him; I think he's at a good age and he can be a really good player for us.

"When he first came on the scene I thought that potentially he could play at a really high level but he took a bit of a backward step when he was at Oldham.

"Fair play to him, though, he went to Morecambe and sorted himself out and for the last two seasons he's probably been Morecambe's most consistent player.

"He's got a lot of things to his game - he can play on the wing and anywhere across the so-called front four - but I like to see him up front.

"He reminds me of Jack Lester, who was at Chesterfield. I think he's got the attributes to be that kind of player and I think I can get the best out of him and get him to score goals."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
