Plymouth Argyle today confirmed they completed the signing of Oscar Threlkeld on a temporary transfer from Belgian top flight club Waasland-Beveren.
Threlkeld left Argyle in the summer, despite being offered a contract, to join the Belgian outfit on a three-year deal.
After starting the first three games of the season in Belgium, the twenty-five-year-old defender has since only featured in the matchday squad twice, both time as a none-playing substitute.
This is the fourth time Adams has signed Threlkheld for Argyle, and the Scot will be hoping he can help shore up a leaky defence which has so far conceded forty-seven goals in the current campaign.
The former Bolton man was a vital member of the team that won Argyle promotion from League Two in the 2016/2017 season, making forty-two appearances across all competitions. An early-season injury hampered Threlkeld’s progress in League One, but his return sparked an upturn in fortunes for Argyle in the second half of the season which saw them narrowly miss out on the Play-offs.
Subject to the usual formalities, Threlkheld should be available for selection for the Pilgrims trip to Southend on Saturday.
Adams first signing of the window is a familiar and popular face to Argyle fans who will be hoping the Scot will be making more such additions to a squad which has struggled so far this season. Threlkeld is a passionate player and by all accounts a fantastic professional who always gives one hundred per cent. Qualities Argyle will need in abundance if they are to avoid the drop.
