Mpenza has scored 17 goals in 54 games for Belgium

Plymouth have completed the signing of Belgium international striker Emile Mpenza on a one-year contract.

The 30-year-old was a free agent after being released by Manchester City in July, allowing Argyle to sign him after the closure of the transfer window.

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock said: "He is an international striker and they don't exactly fall off trees.

"He brings experience to the front line and gives us something different to what we have had before."

Sturrock added: "He is a big, strong boy and he has done it, seen it and got the t-shirt.

"He played in the Premiership 25 times last year and we are delighted to have that kind of standard here."

Mpenza, who rose to prominence with Standard Liege in his homeland, scored six goals during his time with City after moving to Eastlands in February 2007.
