Plymouth Argyle manager Ian Holloway has been busy in the transfer market bringing three new players to Home Park, including two Hungarians. Peter Halmosi joins the Pilgrims on loan from Debreceni VSC while Krisztian Timar arrives from Ferencvaros. Halmosi has the option to move to the Championship side on a permanent deal in the summer for £400,000. There is also the chance to sign central defender Timar at the end of the campaign for £100,000. Both players have agreed two-year deals, should their loans prove successful. Holloway has also snapped up QPR striker Kevin Gallen on loan until the end of the campaign. The Plymouth boss worked with Gallen when he was the manager at Loftus Road, and is a big fan of the player. "Kevin Gallen is one of the best players I've ever worked with," Holloway told Argyle's official website. "He's played right-wing, left-wing, centre midfield. He was my captain and hardly ever missed a game when I was at QPR. "He's somebody I know, somebody I trust, and I know he can put the ball in the net as well." Meanwhile, teenage midfielder Luke Summerfield has signed an extension to his contract that will keep him at Home Park until the summer of 2008.
