PAUL Murray has added Bradford City midfielder Matty Dolan to his Hartlepool United squad on loan until the end of December.

Hartlepool-born Dolan is set to go straight into the squad for Saturday’s home match with league leaders Wycombe Wanderers at Victoria Park.

SportMail reported earlier today that Pools were keeping tabs on the central midfielder, who is dangerous from set pieces, after parent club Bradford made him available for loan.

Murray has moved to add him to his squad before the emergency loan window closed at teatime.

Dolan spent the first half of last season on loan at Pools, making 25 appearances, scoring two goals.

He was recalled to Boro in January before then going on loan to the Bantams, where he signed permanently in the summer.

Dolan has made nine appearances for far this season for Bradford but has struggled to get into their starting line-up in recent weeks.

The 21-year-old has been handed number 15 and will remain on loan at Pools until the end of December.
