Blanchard: Stays on at Home Park
Plymouth have completed the signing of defender Maxime Blanchard until the end of the season, subject to Football League approval.
The Frenchman joined the Pilgrims on a short-term contract in November following a successful trial at Home Park and strong performances since then have convinced manager Carl Fletcher to offer the centre-back an extended stay in Devon.
Fletcher said Blanchard deserved the opportunity, telling Argyle's official website: "Max came in and has shown the hunger and desire that we wanted.
"We had him on a short-term deal to begin with, and we are pleased to extend that until the end of the season.
"It's a great opportunity for him and we hope he carries on in the vein he has since he's been here."
