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.
