Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe has ended his interest, at least for now, in trialist Calvin Miller but Ben Reeves is continuing to train with the Pilgrims.
Miller, 22, had played at left wing-back for Argyle during pre-season but George Cooper is now set to take on that role after his transfer from League One rivals Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee on Wednesday.
Reeves, the 28-year-old former MK Dons and Charlton Athletic midfielder, joined up with the Pilgrims last Friday and played as a second half substitute in the 2-1 win against Forest Green Rovers the following afternoon.
There is a possibility that Reeves, who is a free agent, could be offered a deal at Argyle but Lowe stated it would have to be ‘right for not just Ben but for the football club’.
Lowe said: “Reevesy is still with us. We will monitor him today (Thursday) and tomorrow, and we will see what we can do with that.
“He has got excellent ability. His pedigree speaks for itself – he has had promotions out of League One.
“He knows what type of football we want. He has been in Karl Robinson’s teams at MK Dons and Charlton, and he’s a great footballer.
“He definitely fits our bill but if we are going to do anything we have got to make sure that the agreement is right for not just Ben but for the football club.”
Lowe added: “We haven’t spoken to Ben over stuff as yet. If he weren’t one we were considering he wouldn’t be in the building.
“We are fine with the budget. We are in a good place with it so we have still got more to manoeuvre, and that doesn’t mean that one or two might not go out as well.
“We will probably see a couple of the youngsters start going out on loan after the Norwich game (at Home Park in the EFL Trophy) on Tuesday.”
Glasgow-born Miller is a free agent after leaving Scottish champions Celtic, the club where he had been at since the age of 12.
Lowe said: “We were looking to do something with Calvin but, to be fair to the kid, he wants to play.
“He has had a couple of years of not playing, and he wants to go somewhere where he’s going to be number one. I couldn’t guarantee him number one.

“Can he compete with George? Potentially, yeah, but we will monitor that. We will keep talking away.
“I know the boy has got other options also. If it’s not for us, it’s for someone else, then we wish him all the best.”
