Plymouth boss Carl Fletcher admits he is delighted to have secured the services of long-time targets Juvhel Tsoumou and Alex MacDonald.
The strikers, both 21, have signed loan deals with Burnley's MacDonald joining the Pilgrims until March while Preston's Tsoumou will remain at Home Park for the duration of the season.
Speaking to the club's official website, Fletcher said: "We've had an eye on both of the players for a long time and we're now close to having two players in each position. Competition for places is what you want at every football club.
"With where we are at the moment it's very hard, in terms of financial and league status, to get proven, established players, especially strikers.
"But for Juhvel, it's an opportunity to play some games and score some goals and really help our team out."
On MacDonald, Fletcher added: "He's young, he's a Scottish Under-21 international and, like you do with every player, you do your homework, ask people you respect in the game and everything came back positive."
