Craig Hignett was delighted to add Fulham defender Sean Kavanagh to his squad for the remainder of the season.
And the Manager feels the versatile defender has all of the attributes needed to do well for the Club,
“He’s similar to Liam Donnelly in the fact he’s come through at Fulham and can play left-back, central defence or in midfield if we need him to,” Hignett told hartlepoolunited.co.uk.
“He’s quick and he’s a good footballer – he might not be the biggest but he’s a real competitor and I think he’ll be a really good addition to the squad.
“We need players who can slot in to different positions who are versatile and can do what we want them to do – Sean fits right in to that category.
“He knows what it’s all about and I think he’s ready to show that; he’s been involved at First Team level at Fulham so he’s not coming in to this green. I think he’s going to do really well for us.”
Kavanagh has joined up with the squad for training this morning and will be in contention for Saturday’s game with Grimsby Town at the Northern Gas and Power Stadium (3pm kick off).
