Maxime Blanchard signs new Plymouth Argyle deal

Plymouth Argyle have secured the services of French defender Maxime Blanchard for next season.

The 25-year-old, who joined the club as a free agent in November, was out of contract in the summer.

He made his debut in the 4-1 win over Northampton and has been an ever-present since signing a contract extension in Janaury, playing 27 times and scoring twice.

Argyle have not disclosed the length of Blanchard's new deal.

His decision came a day after teenage striker Matt Lecointe also committed himself to Home Park for next season.
