O’Donnell rejects move from Partick Thistle to Blackpool
PARTICK defender Stephen O’Donnell has knocked back a £100,000 move to Blackpool.
The Sky Bet Championship strugglers had a bid accepted by Thistle on Monday night.
But the Jags right-back – who is out of contract at the end of the season – has decided against switching to the Bloomfield Road side rooted to the bottom of the table.
O’Donnell told the official Partick website: “It wasn’t something that came down to money. My agent spoke to Blackpool and we decided that it just wasn’t the right move for me at this time.
“I’m a Partick Thistle player and will be doing everything I can to make sure we finish as far up the table as possible, with top six still a very real possibility. I am happy where I am just now and am incredibly proud every time I pull on the Partick Thistle shirt.”
