Tisdale admits Harley doubts

17 January 2011 11:00
Exeter manager Paul Tisdale has admitted that midfielder Ryan Harley is `unsettled' at the club, ahead of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy southern final first leg against Brentford. The 25-year-old was not part of the squad that drew 1-1 at Griffin Park in the first visit in four days, following growing transfer speculation generated after the club rejected two bids from Brighton. Speaking to thisiscornwall.co.uk, Tisdale said: "Ryan is unsettled at the moment, and I am just being considerate and respectful to him. "He has had a difficult couple of weeks and I didn't feel it was appropriate for him to play on Friday night. "He didn't train because of a hamstring injury he picked up against MK Dons, it hasn't been a good time for him. "You have to be physically and mentally right to play a game of football."
