Manchester United youngster David Gray has joined Plymouth on loan until the end of the season.

The Premier League champions agreed to let the Scotland Under 21 international team up with fellow Red Devils starlet Craig Cathcart at Home Park.

Gray, 20, will finalised personal terms on Thursday and United's reserve team captain will be eligible for Plymouth's FA Cup third-round tie with Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.

Manager Paul Sturrock is also on the look-out for a striker during the transfer window and told the club's official website: "Scoring goals will be an area I am trying to do something about.

"We will attempt to strengthen that area of the team because, if you look at stats and figures, we haven't scored enough goals."
