Kangulungu signs Argyle deal

Argyle boss Paul Sturrock has high hopes for Eugene Kangulungu
Plymouth have signed defender Eugene Kangulungu on a three-month contract.

The 27-year-old Republic of Congo international, who has been playing in the French league, has agreed to stay at Home Park until the international transfer window in January.

"He's very much a French defender, very continental in style," manager Paul Sturrock explained.

"There's a lot of work to be done by him to way-lay the fears I have in my mind before I put him in my back four."

Kangulungu has played in several reserve games for Argyle, despite breaking his cheekbone in a second-string game against Bristol City.

Sturrock added: "It'll be up to Eugene to convince me over the next three months that he can adapt to the British game.

"Saying that, he's very quick, very aggressive and he's got a good range of passing. If he can add the British style, we might have an exciting player."
