O’Don­nell re­jects move from Partick This­tle to Black­pool

The Herald - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

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.”
