ARGYLE have made a second signing in the January transfer window, bringing in Nathan Blissett from Torquay United.
Blissett, 26, makes his way from South to West Devon following the signing on Wednesday of Jakub Sokolik, who was released by Southend.
Nathan has scored 12 goals in 41 appearances for Torquay since signing for the Gulls in January 2016. He is a 6ft 4in centre-forward who looks to use his height and power to lead the line, and has done so to good effect for United.
Blissett was in the Torquay line-up – and scored a penalty – when Argyle met the Gulls at the Launa Windows Stadium in pre-season. He is the nephew of former Watford and England striker Luther Blissett.
The fee involved in Nathan’s signing is undisclosed, per EFL regulations but we can note that he becomes the first person that Argyle have paid a fee to sign since Paris Cowan-Hall came to Home Park in June 2012.
Nathan’s eye-catching spell at Evo-Stik League Division One South side Romulus propelled him to Kidderminster Harriers in 2012. From there, he had loan spells at Cambridge United, Hednesford Town and Bristol Rovers, eventually joining the latter on a permanent basis.
He was part of the Rovers team promoted to the EFL in 2014-15, then had loan spells at Tranmere Rovers and Lincoln City before arriving in Devon.
Blissett will wear the number 13 shirt for Argyle. He has played in the Emirates FA Cup this season, so is cup-tied for our visit to Liverpool on Sunday.
