Cheltenham Town Chairman, Paul Baker:
"If I have to deal with Blackpool again it will be too soon !
"Following our decision to reject various frankly insulting offers for Harry Pell, they finally decide to put forward a serious offer a day or so before the start of the season.
"It was far from great timing as it meant we could not realistically pick one of our most influential players for our opening game of the campaign.
"That did Gary and the team preparations no favours as even on the day itself Blackpool had still not agreed personal terms, leaving the player in limbo.
"On Monday the position was finally confirmed, after a lengthy medical and hours of negotiation, Harry decided to decline their overtures and stay with Cheltenham Town.
"Needless to say I was delighted and it says so much about our club, our manager and Harry.
"Nevertheless, the whole situation leaves much to be desired.
