Plymouth striker Klajdi Lolos has been given an ultimatum on his future at Home Park by manager Ryan Lowe.
The 19-year-old had spent time out on loan with Dorchester Town in the Southern Premier League this season and he has now been given a very clear message about his chances of establishing himself at his parent club.
As per Plymouth Herald, Lowe said: “Lolos, we see magic in him. A few people have said ‘Can he do this, can he do that?’
“I have got a lot of time for Lolos because I think he can be a special player and I have told him this. But he is probably in the last chance saloon to kick on and go and show us he can play league football because we feel he can.”
Greek striker Lolos played a handful of first team games for Plymouth earlier in the season, starting one EFL Trophy match and making four substitute appearances in League Two, along with grabbing an assist in the Carabao Cup defeat to Reading last August. [via TransferMarkt]
Plymouth Herald noted that the teenager continued to play for the Pilgrims in the Central League and Premier League Under-23 Cup throughout his loan spell at Dorchester, scoring several times in those fixtures.
He returns to Home Park with his chances of first team football perhaps boosted by the impending releases of Ryan Taylor and Alex Fletcher, both of whose contracts expire at the end of this month, while Ryan Hardie has returned to Blackpool after the culmination of his loan spell.
Lowe will need all the firepower he can get as Argyle take on League One next season and he has thrown down the gauntlet to Lolos, who has no experience at that level.
Can you see Klajdi Lolos establishing himself at Plymouth next season?
The Greek youngster probably won’t be leading the line for Plymouth in 2020/21, although he has the opportunity to make a firm case to his manager now that he has been told it is effectively a case of now or never for him at Home Park.
