    Jerome Opoku will join the Pilgrims on an initial deal until January

    Defender Jerome Opoku has joined Argyle on-loan from Premier League side Fulham.

    A ball-playing central defender who can also play at left-back, the 21-year-old joins Ryan Lowe’s Pilgrims on an initial deal until January.

    Mitcham-born Opoku spent last season on-loan in Sky Bet League One with Accrington Stanley, making 21 appearances across the defence as Stanley consolidated in the third tier.

    Jerome will wear the no.24 shirt for the Pilgrims’ 20/21 campaign.
