AFC Wimbledon coach Simon Bassey says new signing Harry Pell maybe 6'4" tall, but most of that is legs.

The 21-year-old midfielder signed from Hereford United today for an undisclosed fee - bringing Neal Ardley's January signings to three following the arrival of Peter Sweeney and Chris Hussey.

Pell made 53 appearances for Hereford, scoring four goals, before being shipped out on loan to Cambridges United.

The former Charlton Athletic youth star had also turned out for Bristol Rovers and Hastings United, and it was while playing for the latter in 2010 that he first came to the attention of Bassey.

"He's a very talented midfielder, who will bring a lot of youthful enthusiasm to the middle of the park," Bassey said.

"I've known about him for some time and we've been monitoring his situation. He maybe young, but he already has a lot of experience."

He added: "He may be more than six-foot tall, but most of that is legs, so we're hoping he'll spread them and bring a lot of energy to the team.

"Of course his height is a big advantage too, but we're hoping he will develop into a fine player while he is with us."
