Lloyd Jones signs for Argyle eight years after leaving for Liverpool

Lloyd Jones has joined Plymouth Argyle on loan from Luton Town for the rest of the season.

The Plymouth Argyle Academy product left Home Park as a fifteen-year-old in 2011, signing for Liverpool for a six-figure fee. The Devon-born defender impressed in the Academy at Anfield and eventually signed his first professional contract with the Merseysiders in 2013.

He captained Liverpool’s Under-23 side without breaking through into the Reds’ first team and has represented both Wales and England at youth levels up to Under-20s as well as enjoying loan spells in Leagues One and Two with Swindon Town, Blackpool, Accrington Stanley and Cheltenham Town.

On deadline day in January 2018, Lloyd made a permanent switch from Liverpool to Luton for an undisclosed fee, becoming part of the Hatters’ squad that won promotion into League One a few months later.

Our View

Jones has failed to live up to the promise that saw Liverpool sign him has a fifteen-year-old and will be hoping that the feeling of going home will kick-start his career. His move to Luton has not worked out, making only two substitutes appearances for the Hatters in their unbelievably successful run which has seen them promoted from League Two and reach the summit of League One.

Argyle fans will be hoping he can help shore up their defence in the quest for League One survival and find his feet back in Devon. They will also be concerned at signing the quality of player who cannot get a look in at their League One rivals.
