Plymouth boss Peter Reid plans to keep Norwich City midfielder Owain Tudur Jones for a week before deciding whether to try to add him to his squad.

The Wales international scored for the Pilgrims in an 8-0 victory over Saltash United on Monday night.

The Canaries announced the 25-year-old was in talks over a possible loan deal, but Reid described him as being on trial at Home Park.

Reid said: “He cruised through the game and looked a decent player. We are going to have a look at him for a week or so.”

Reid confirmed Tudur Jones' arrival owed much to his Welsh compatriot.

“Ian Rush, who I know well, had a word with me about him and recommended him,” said Reid. “So we're having a look at him to see if he likes us and we like him. I thought he did all right. We're having a look at Laurent, too. He's been injured but he was very determined.

“I'm just trying to balance the squad. It's difficult to say who I'm going to take on.”
