On Tuesday, it was announced chairman of football operations Peter Ridsdale had resigned to take on a similar post at League One club Preston North End which gives Plymouth owner James Brent the opportunity to establish a completely new management structure at Home Park.
Former Pilgrims' vice-chairman Peter Jones and Professor David Wheeler, the Dean of Business and Pro Vice Chancellor at the University of Plymouth, are two candidates. The ?Argyle owner is thought to have had talks with both of them in Plymouth on Monday.
Argyle exited administration at the end of October, when Brent completed a successful takeover, and have been operating without a board of directors since then.
Brent told the Herald Sport
"We are talking to people who we think could be good directors. It's about getting five people to slot together, like a jigsaw puzzle."
Brent admitted he hopes to make an announcement about the new board of directors "sooner rather than later" but has not put a time on it.
