Pools will train at the T3 facility in La Caleta in the south-west of the island from July 10-17.

Craig Hignett has also earmarked two frierndlies for his squad at the training base which has been used by Liverpool and Manchester City in the past.

“Hopefully we’ll have a few new faces in the group by then and to be in each other’s pockets for seven days will accelerate them getting to know one another.

“The place there really is top notch – the pitches are fantastic.

“They have everything you need on-site and I think it shows the direction the club is moving in that we’re going to places like this.”

Pools currently have only one pre-season friendly booked in, a trip to Salford City on Tuesday, July 26.
