And the left-back is could earn himself a permanent deal with the Pilgrims, although he’s currently keeping his options open over where his future lies.

Lowe told the Plymouth Herald: ‘We have got Brendan Galloway in with us. He's a left-sided defender, left wing-back. He was with us the back end of last season for a week and enjoyed it.

‘I have known Brendan since he was a kid at MK Dons. He's a fantastic lad, he has had a couple of injuries over the years.

‘We want to give the lad an opportunity to earn a contract. So we are pleased to have him on board and have him with us.

‘He will play a part in some games. For me, the big thing with Brendan is that he has chosen to come here.

‘He's keeping his options open, but we had an agreement with him at the end of season to come back for pre-season, show us his fitness and play some games and then we will make a decision, so that's what he has done.

‘We are going to be open to that, we are going to continue that, and the same with him.

‘If he does well and gets through the training schedules, which are intense, then hopefully we can see Brendan Galloway in a green shirt.’
