Perhaps Argyle should try and agree a fee with Blackpool for Hardie right now, before his stock rises too much ?
If Argyle could afford him, and he wants to sign permanently here, then it could work out well for all parties.
PS- I saw David Goodwillie play for Clyde against Celtic the other day on TV. Legal troubles aside, he might have been a player that could have thrived under Lowe's particular style of football. I think he is a much better player than he showed during his time at Home Park.
