Plymouth Argyle have signed midfielder Darko Gyabi and forward Muhamed Tijani on season-long loan deals

Gyabi, 20, returns for a second loan spell at the club, after first joining from Leeds United in January this year.

Tijani, 23, arrives from Czech side Slavia Prague and could make the switch permanent when the loan expires.

Plymouth boss Wayne Rooney has welcomed both players after taking over this summer.

"I heard really good reports about Darko from his time with Argyle last season and since watching him closely I was really keen to bring him back to the club," Rooney told Argyle's website.

“He fits the profile of midfielder I like to have within the squad, as he is good on the ball, powerful and athletic, and will fit the style of play I am looking to implement."

On Tijani, Rooney added: “Muhamed joining further strengthens our forward line and he will bring different attributes to the squad.

“He is big, athletic and can run in behind, but is equally as good at holding the ball up and bringing other players into play.

“He has played and scored in the Europa League so comes with good pedigree but is also young and keen to improve. We are really looking forward to working with him.”

Gyabi made 10 appearances for Argyle last season before suffering a groin injury in March that meant he had to return to Leeds for the remainder of the campaign.
