Luke McCormick in talks to make Plymouth Argyle return

Plymouth Argyle are in talks to re-sign their former goalkeeper Luke McCormick.

The 29-year-old, who was released by League Two club Oxford United earlier this week, is in discussions about a possible return.

McCormick was sacked by Argyle in 2008 after causing the death of two children in a car crash.

He served about half of a seven years and four months jail term, but returned to football last year with Truro City.

He moved to Oxford in January and made 15 appearances for the club.

"Although Luke made a dreadful mistake with unthinkable consequences, he has served his time and is totally remorseful," Argyle chairman James Brent told BBC South West Sport.

"From a moral standpoint I think he is entitled to rehabilitation and if John Sheridan wants to sign him I will be supportive of that."

During his first spell at Home Park, McCormick contested a first-team place with long-serving goalkeeper Romain Larrieu and played 138 league games.

Argyle released third-choice keeper Ollie Chenoweth and put reserve Rene Gilmartin on the transfer list on Tuesday.
