Plymouth have signed Republic of Ireland Under-21 midfielder Conor Clifford on a month's loan from Chelsea.

The tough-tackling Dubliner captained the Blues' youth team to FA Youth Cup glory in May.

Clifford has signed for the Pilgrims, who currently languish in 19th place in League One, until November 19.

He is eligible for the clash against Huddersfield at Home Park on Saturday.

Argyle boss Peter Reid told the club's official website: "I've had him watched and he can see a pass, and he was very enthusiastic to come and play here.

"The Chelsea management team of Carlo Ancelotti and Ray Wilkins have helped greatly and I'm delighted to have him here.

"I'll decide whether he starts tomorrow but he has a good chance."
