Paul Murray has moved to significantly strengthen his squad with the signing of midfielder Matty Dolan on loan from Bradford City.
The Hartlepool-born schemer spent half of last season on loan at Victoria Park from Middlesbrough during which he made 25 appearances and scored two goals.
He was recalled to Boro in January before spending the latter part of the campaign on loan to Bradford City for whom he went on to sign permanently in the summer.
However, Dolan has made only nine appearances for The Bantams so far this season and Pools boss Murray has now negotiated a deal to bring him back to The Vic until the end of December.
The talented 21-year-old has been handed number 15 and is expected to go straight in to the squad for this weekend’s game against Wycombe Wanderers at Victoria Park.
