Jordan Houghton: Chelsea midfielder going to Plymouth

Chelsea midfielder Jordan Houghton is poised to join League Two promotion-hopefuls Plymouth Argyle, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

As revealed by TEAMtalk.com earlier this week a number of Football League clubs were chasing the highly-rated midfielder, but Plymouth have won the race for his signature.

Houghton, 20, enjoyed a spell out on loan at Gillingham earlier this season, making 15 appearances for the club before returning to Stamford Bridge in January.

Chelsea feel the England Under-20 international would benefit from going out on loan again to get some valuable first-team experience under his belt.

Plymouth boss Derek Adams is thought to be an admirer of Houghton and sees him as a key addition to his squad for the run-in to the season.

Plymouth are currently third in League Two and are well-placed to secure automatic promotion and Houghton’s arrival will come as a welcome boost to the squad.
