Crystal Palace defender Matthew Parsons has moved to Plymouth Argyle for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old will link up with former team mate Jason Banton who joined the League Two club earlier this week.

Parsons is an Eagles academy graduate, making his senior debut as substitute in the 1-1 League Cup draw at Portsmouth, in August 2010.

The left-back made 10 appearances over the next three seasons and had spells on loan at Barnet and Wycombe Wanderers but was unable to break into the Palace first 11.

"I just wanted to get out and play some games and when I knew Plymouth were interested, I was on it straight away," he said.

"I was working hard all pre-season; then all the work I did just went to pot because I was ill. I had a little complaint in my kidneys and was in hospital for five days, and couldnít play football for two months.

"I was on medication after that, so I havenít really had much game-time from then until now.

"Hopefully, we can make the play-offs; weíre not too far away. It seems like a club thatís on the up."
