Hartlepool United are delighted to announce the permanent signing of Brody Paterson from Celtic FC. The wing-back joins Pools on a two-year-deal.
After signing his first professional contract in June 2018, Paterson, 21, has featured for Celtic’s under-17, under-18, and reserve sides.
Capable of playing on the left side of defence and on the wing, Paterson spent last season on loan at Airdrieonians. A positive season saw the Diamonds finish second to Hartley’s Cove Rangers.
Paul Hartley added:
Delighted to bring Brody to Hartlepool. He is someone I saw a lot during his time with Airdrieonians last season. He’s a good young player who can give us a few options in terms of positions. He has had a good grounding at Celtic and gained some great experience. We’re really looking forward to working with him over the course of the season.
As soon as I heard about the opportunity, it was a no brainer. I am excited to work with the Gaffer and play in front of these incredible fans. I have been into training and all the lads are great. You can tell everyone is excited for the new season ahead.
Paterson will wear the number 14 shirt and his move will be subject to international clearance.
