Hartlepool clinch loan deal for Middlesbrough’s Dolan

Have your say

HARTLEPOOL United have finally sealed their long-term pursuit of Middlesbrough midfielder Matty Dolan.

The 20-year-old has penned a one-month loan deal at Victoria Park and goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s League Two visit of Fleetwood Town.

Pools boss Colin Cooper has made no secret of his admiration for Dolan having worked with him at Boro.

And the Pools-born star now becomes the second player to follow Cooper to Victoria Park after Christian Burgess’s loan switch earlier this month.

Dolan will take the No.4 shirt in Pools’ squad.
