Folly completes Plymouth transfer
Yoann Folly
Folly has played under Argyle boss Paul Sturrock before
Plymouth Argyle have completed the signing of France Under-21 midfielder Yoann Folly from Sheffield Wednesday.

The 22-year-old has moved to Home Park for an undisclosed fee having played under Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock at Wednesday and Southampton.

"This is a fresh start for me - a new town and an exciting challenge," Folly told Argyle's website.

Sturrock said: "He can be a passer, a sitter or support the front players. He has all that in his armoury."

Yolly, who still had 18 months left on his Wednesday contract, handed in at transfer request at Hillsborough.

He was unhappy with his lack of first-team opportunities at the club.

Sturrock added: "When I went to Sheffield Wednesday after Southampton, I brought him there.

"He was beginning to become a fans' favourite for his performances but finished up on the periphery again when a new manager came in.

"Over the last six or seven games he's been playing quite regularly, and I was a little bit worried whether I'd be able to pick him up again.

"I'm very pleased to add him to the squad."
