The club are interested in signing Plymouth goalkeeper Michael Cooper, according to the Plymouth Herald.

The Football Insider reported on Monday that Aston Villa and Brighton were keen on the 18-year-old, but it seems that we have now also entered the running.

It’s unlikely that Cooper would come to St Andrew’s as a number one. The teenager has played just one senior match, which came last season as Argyle faced an injury crisis.

In a 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers in October, the stopper came on at half-time to make his debut after Kyle Letheren suffered a torn thigh muscle.

Cooper was Plymouth’s second choice for the majority of last season, but he will be third in line next campaign with Harry Burgoyne having signed from Wolves on loan earlier this month.

The youngster has two years remaining on his contract at Home Park, and the Plymouth Herald say it will take a “substantial fee” to sign the promising keeper this summer.
