Alessandra, out of contract this summer, initially agreed to put pen to paper on a fresh deal to remain at the Globe Arena but has now instead taken up the offer of a two-year contract with the Pilgrims.

Bentley told the club's official website: "Lewis has done really well for us over the past two years and I am obviously hugely disappointed to lose him.

"We had a chat a few weeks ago and he said he intended to sign on again but has since had a change of heart with another club coming in for him.

"Although I am disappointed it means we will have to look at other avenues and stay positive. I have been talking to a lot of players in recent weeks and will keep chasing a number of targets we have in mind."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
