Plymouth boss Derek Adams says he is already planning for the 2017-18 season, after signing a new contract.

The 41-year-old's new deal, signed just two days before the start of the new League Two season, runs until 2020.

"Season on season you want to look forward. This gives us that opportunity to look to the season after and we've already been doing that in the closed season," he told BBC Devon.

"It was quite easy and I'm happy to commit my future to the football club."

Adams joined Argyle last summer, having previously been in charge on Scottish side Ross County.

He led Plymouth to the League Two play-off final, where they were beaten 2-0 by AFC Wimbledon at Wembley in May.

"We've added depth to our squad, we've got competition for places all over, which we didn't have lasts season," added Adams ahead of hi side's opening match at home to Luton.

"Last season a number of the players were assured they were going to play every week, it didn't matter how they were going to play.

"This year it's different as we have competition at right-back, left-back, centre-half, goalkeeper, midfield and striker, and that's important because it can push the players even further on."
