Hitchcock has yet to make a first team appearance at Ewood Park

Plymouth Argyle are in negotiations with Blackburn Rovers to bring striker Tom Hitchcock to Home Park.

Hitchcock, who is an England youth international, has yet to make a first team appearance for the Premier League side.

Argyle are hoping to sign the 18-year-old on a long-term loan deal, according to the club's club's website. 

Plymouth are in the hunt for a striker after Liam Dickinson quit the club on Wednesday  , a week after joining.

Hithcock, who scored a hat-trick for Rovers' reserve side in a pre-season friendly on Saturday, is the son of former Chelsea goalkeeper Kevin Hitchcock.
