The Wales international, who played for Argyle during the 2009/10 campaign, enjoyed a short spell with Newport before departing Rodney Parade earlier this summer.

And the 25-year-old is now training with the Pilgrims in a bid to earn a deal.

"I think Darcy will admit he's lost his way a little bit but he's got an opportunity now," Sheridan told BBC Sport.

"We'll work him hard and hopefully he'll impress us enough to earn himself a contract.

"It's a case of getting Darcy fit, I know he's got the ability at this level.

"It's just a case of having a look at him for the next two or three weeks, look at his fitness levels and take it from there.

"He's way behind at this moment in time, so we'll try and work him hard and get him back playing and then have a look at him."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
