Matthew Bates has moved back in to the transfer market to snap up young forward Tyrone O’Neill on loan from Middlesbrough.

The industrious front man has joined Pools on a deal which will see him remain at The Super 6 Stadium until the end of 2018.

O’Neill played the full ninety minutes for Middlesbrough’s Under-21s side on Wednesday night as they won 1-0 at Burton Albion in the Checkatrade Trophy.

“We went to watch Middlesbrough on Sunday and Tyrone stood out,” explained Bates.

“He’s still only young but I am sure he’s a player who the fans will enjoy watching because he’s whole-hearted, works very hard and he will offer something different to what we’ve got.”

The 19-year-old has been given permission to play in the FA Cup and will go straight in to contention for Saturday’s First Round tie at Gillingham.
