Pools boss Ronnie Moore has landed a striker on loan with Ellis Harrison set to arrive from Bristol Rovers.
The 21-year-old made rapid progress with Rovers during his time as a scholar and was rewarded with a First Team debut at just 17 and he went on to sign professional terms in 2012.
The powerful front man was among the stars for Darrell Clarke’s men last season as they made an instant return to the Football League, scoring 17 goals in all competitions including one in their Play-Off Final victory at Wembley.
A Wales Under-21 international, Harrison was handed the number 9 shirt at The Memorial Stadium at the start of this season and hit the net five times before the end of October.
The pacey striker will link-up with Pools for the first time on Monday - fresh from scoring a late winner from the penalty spot in Rovers' 2-1 triumph at Oxford United on Sunday afternoon.
Despite remaining highly-regarded by boss Clarke, the Newport-born youngster is keen for more regular football and Pools were quick to make their move and offer him that chance.
Harrison is now set to remain with the Club until after our game against Luton Town on Saturday 20th February and will go in to contention for Tuesday evening’s trip to Accrington Stanley, subject to Football League approval.
