Significant update on Plymouth Argyle futures of Brendan Galloway and Mickel Miller

Director of football Neil Dewsnip believes Plymouth Argyle retaining their Championship status will improve the chances of Brendan Galloway and Mickel Miller deciding to stay at Home Park.

The pair are out of contract this summer as it stands and negotiations have already taken place about new deals for both of them, involving the players, their agents and the club. One player who does seem set to leave Home Park this summer, though, is Callum Burton, who was the third choice goalkeeper behind Michael Cooper and Conor Hazard for much of this season.

Burton played only twice during the 2023/24 campaign, in the Carabao Cup ties at home to Leyton Orient and Crystal Palace last August, and his current deal at Argyle will run out at the end of June.

The Pilgrims are expected to announce their end-of-season retained list within the next day or so, with Galloway and Miller included under the 'out-of-contract, offered new contract' category.

Dewsnip briefly gave an indication about the futures of Galloway and Miller after the season-ending 1-0 victory over Hull City at Home Park on Saturday, which ensured Argyle's Championship survival.

He said: "Obviously, we didn't know what league we were going to be in. I respect the fact they wanted to wait to see where they would be so hopefully today is a positive way forward in that respect."

Galloway has had a number of injury issues since first joining Argyle in the summer of 2021 and did not play this season until late November after a long-term absence, but the Zimbabwe international went on to make a total of 20 starts and nine substitute appearances between then and the end of the campaign.

Miller, who missed the final three fixtures of this term due to a knee ligament injury, has played 49 games for the Pilgrims, with 29 of them starts, since arriving as a free agent from Rotherham United in July 2022.

Burton's wife, Day, posted a picture of her husband and their young son on X (formerly Twitter) on Saturday afternoon, stood on the Home Park pitch after the win against Hull, with the message 'The end of our chapter down here'.

That resulted in close to 200 replies, including one from club director, and managing member of Argyle Green, Nick Giannotti, who said: "Best of luck Cal!!! You pushed Coops and Conor to be the best that they could be. Our success as a club is because of people like you. Once a Green."
