Plymouth Argyle defender Chris Barker is set to leave the Home Park-based club after manager Peter Reid told him he didn't figure in his future plans. With the club travelling to the Netherlands as their pre-season plans continue, Barker will stay in England and look for a new outfit. Speaking to the club's official website, Reid said: "Chris Barker won't be going. We've had chat about it and I think his future is away from the club, and I've told him that. "I've made the decision as the manager. You have to make those decisions because that's what I'm paid for. I have nothing against the boy, it's just a professional decision." Meanwhile, trialist Anton Peterlin is close to agreeing terms with Argyle, according to his agent, Barry McLean. "Something is happening with Anton. There's a good chance he will sign with Plymouth. We are trying to work it out," he said.
