Ipswich Town target Danny Mayor has signed for Plymouth Argyle.
The former Bury winger was at Portman Road at the end of last week to speak with manager Paul Lambert, before going away to make a decision regarding his future.
He had previously visited Plymouth, now managed by his former Bury boss Ryan Lowe, while Tranmere and Fleetwood were also interested in the former League Two player of the year.
But he has now agreed to sign for Plymouth on a free transfer after Bury's financial problems made it impossible for them to keep hold of their star player.
"Everyone knows my relationship with the gaffer at Bury," Mayor said after signing his deal.
"There's no doubt that he got the best out of me last season.

"That really sold it to me."

Speaking prior to Mayor's arrival, Lowe told the Plymouth Herald: "We have got to respect Dan. He's not only the best player in League Two, he's a good friend of ours.
"He has had a look around with his missus. He was very impressed, not only with the football club but with the people around, everyone he has met.
"We were out for some food. It's a fantastic place and Dan and his missus know that.
"Again, we haven't had to sell anything to Dan. It has sold itself but we just have to be patient and respect his decision.
"Hopefully, we can see him in an Argyle kit rather than any other kit."
He added: "We have tabled an offer, he knows what it looks like. He has been very open and transparent with us, because he can and he always is.
"He's obviously speaking to other clubs, which again is fine. We will respect whatever decision Dan makes.
"For us, he's someone that has been on our radar since the minute I got the job, so we will just have to see how that pans out.
"I have said to Dan as a friend, manager aside and whatever, it's a case of pick the footballing choice.
"Dan is not chasing any sort of big, big money. He's just chasing the dreams.
