Plymouth Argyle have added competition to their goalkeeping ranks today with the signing of Kyle Letheren on a free.

The 29-year-old returns to Home Park for the first time in eight years, having joined the club in 2009 as cover for then first choice stopper Romain Larrieu.

It is likely he will perform similar duties for the Pilgrims this time around, with captain and first-choice ‘keeper Luke McCormick and summer signing Robbert te Loeke already entrenched at the club.

Welshman Letheren started his career with Swansea City, before moving on to Barnsley in 2006. His short spell with Plymouth followed, and Letheren then moved north of the border with Kilmarnock in 2010.

He stayed in Scotland with Dundee, joining the Dee in 2013 and helping them win promotion to the Premiership. Letheren was the primary shot-stopper for the first time in his career, but injuries disrupted his second season at Dens Park. He subsequently moved on to Blackpool in 2015 and York City a year later, where he played 36 times before his release last season.

Argyle have made a slow start to life back in League One, scoring a win, a draw and three defeats to leave them 18th in the table after five games.
