Striker Padraig Amond has this afternoon completed a move to Newport County.
The front man has been in South Wales to discuss terms on his switch to Rodney Parade and the transfer has now been confirmed.
Amond joined Pools from Grimsby Town in the summer of 2016 and went on to score 15 goals in all competitions during his 45 appearances for the Club.
It had been hoped that the Club could convince the 29-year-old to stay at Victoria Park despite last season’s relegation but Amond has now been attracted back to the EFL.
The transfer fee paid for the Irishman’s services has been kept undisclosed at the request of Newport County.
Everyone at Hartlepool United would like to wish Padraig all the very best in his future career.
