Blackburn Rovers’ 18-year-old striker Tom Hitchcock is wanted by League Two Plymouth Argyle on loan, having progressed through the club’s academy.

Hitchcock has consistently scored goals at all age levels and opened his pre-season for the reserves this time around with a hat trick in the 7-1 win at Kendal on Saturday.

Argyle manager Peter Reid, said: “We are having a chat with Blackburn about him. That’s all I can say about it at the moment.”
