Tafari Moore joined Plymouth Argyle on a free transfer from Arsenal in July 2018, signing a contract to summer 2020. Things started well, as he made 18 appearances before December 2018, but after that, the situation went downhill fast.

Moore sat on the bench in the league in December, before dropping out of the squad entirely. He only made two further appearances on the bench from January to May, failing to get on the pitch on either occasion. Plymouth were also relegated to League Two.

This season offered a little bit of hope, as Moore made two starts in late August/early September. Unfortunately, he then dropped out of the squad entirely again, from September 3rd to today.

First-team manager Ryan Lowe spoke to the media about the situation on Thursday. He confirmed Plymouth’s financial offer to Tafari Moore to leave his contract early, adding that the defender is talented but he needs to start playing matches now.

It’s a shame things aren’t working out with Plymouth for the ex-Arsenal academy man. It may well be for the best to take the money and search for a new club. It’s up to him, of course.
