Plymouth Argyle boss Paul Sturrock is prepared to let goalkeeper Graham Stack leave the club in January.

Stack joined Plymouth on a two-year deal last summer from Reading and started the season as the club's first choice.

However, he has not featured since losing his place to Romain Larrieu in September and recently spent a month on loan at Blackpool.

Sturrock understands Stack wants to play regularly and will not block a move away from Home Park during the transfer window.

Important

"Graham and I have had a conversation and it's important he plays regular first-team football," Sturrock told the club's official website. "He has made that plain.

"The situation has arisen that he can go out on trial, go back out on loan again, or move on with a permanent deal.

"I would hope for Stacky's sake that somebody comes in and either takes him on loan or permanently and he gets his wish of playing first-team football."

Meanwhile, Sturrock has played down reports linking promising youngster Craig Noone with Premier League duo Sunderland and Wigan Athletic.

He added: "Nooney is an exciting player and I would hope to think that over the piece people are going to come watch him and give good reports back to their managers.

"I don't see this newspaper story being any more than that.

"I would imagine any scout worth his salt will be reporting back after watching some of the games he has come on and played in. But, as I said, I think that's as far as it goes at this minute in time."
