Plymouth Argyle striker Jake Jervis has said the one-year contracts handed out to the club's new players should be seen as an extra incentive.

The 23-year-old is one of five new signings at the League Two side who have all agreed 12-month deals.

"The majority have signed for one year and it's an incentive all round," Jervis told BBC Sport.

"I think that's the best way, so the boys don't get comfortable and you can obviously push on from there."

Jervis, who worked under Pilgrims' boss Derek Adams at Scottish Premier League outfit Ross County, has played for 11 clubs in his career.

That includes spells at Birmingham, Portsmouth and Turkish side Elazigspor, though the forward is keen to settle at a club.

"That's what it's about, it's about playing games to be honest and getting a full season," he added.

"He (Adams) brings a big presence on the touchline and gets involved, which translates to the boys on the pitch in terms of working hard and getting stuck in.

"I enjoyed that time working with him, which was a big factor in coming here."

The Devon club returned to pre-season training on Monday, with their latest addition Josh Simpson set to join up with the squad this week.
