ARGYLE have signed defender Matt Parsons from Crystal Palace.The long-time target of manager John Sheridan has joined on a permanent deal from the Eagles until the end of the current campaign.
Parsons also spent a spell during that season at Barnet on loan, where he started eight games.
Matt was involved in six games for Palace in various competitions during the 2011-12 season, before a five-game loan period at Wycombe Wanderers in League 2 at the start of the following campaign.
Now 22 - his birthday is on Christmas Day - Matt signed a contract extension with Palace, on the same day as Jason Banton did similar, in March last year, committing him to Palace until the end of the 2013-14 season.
He was linked with a move to Argyle in the summer as Argyle sought a player in his position, but links at the time were extinguished when John Sheridan revealed that the left-back had a kidney complaint.
Now, Sheridan has got his man.
