Persistence seems to have paid off in Cheltenham's bid to re-sign Blackpool defender Ashley Eastham.
The 18-year-old impressed during a one-month loan spell with the League Two outfit and had agreed a deal to stay for a second month before being recalled by the Championship side.
Town boss Mark Yates then enquired about the availability of the teenager earlier in the week and the prospects looked doubtful.
But Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has allowed the youngster, who was on the bench for Blackpool's 1-1 draw at Cardiff City on Saturday, to leave again on loan.
As an Under-21 player, Eastham will be able to sign until the end of the season, although the Seasiders can recall him at a day's notice.
The defender was due to complete the paperwork on his loan deal on Friday and is now set to go into the squad for Saturday's league match at Grimsby Town.
Dead in water
Robins boss Yates told the club's official website: "It was all dead in the water on Monday and I've been actively searching for another young centre-back with some pace, power and strength.
"Ash has got that, he's one we know, he can slot straight back in and he's a good character.
"I spoke to Ian Holloway on Monday and they were keen to keep him in and around them and they had been impressed by the reports they'd had back from us.
"But they were also getting enquiries from League One clubs as well.
"Again, that shows that we're doing things properly and fortunately enough, we had a phone call from Blackpool saying that the situation might have changed and I think we are Ashley's preferred choice, which is great.
"Hopefully now we can keep hold of him for a bit and help to develop him as a player so that he can keep on improving."
