Hartlepool United are delighted to announce Otis Khan has signed on loan from Grimsby Town until the end of the season.
The exciting attacker, who represents Pakistan internationally, came through the youth set-up at Manchester United before moving onto Sheffield United and playing in League One as a youngster.
The 28-year-old holds vast experience in the Football League with over 200 appearances across League One and Two. He's played for the likes of Yeovil, Mansfield and Leyton Orient, and also reached the EFL Trophy Final with Tranmere Rovers in 2021.
Last season, Khan made 39 appearances for Grimsby as they finished 11th in League Two, as well as playing in the World Cup qualifiers for Pakistan.
Khan will wear the number 40 shirt at the Suit Direct Stadium and be eligible to play in Saturday’s home fixture against York City.
Upon joining Pools, Khan stated:
"It's a massive opportunity and I can't wait to get going. The gaffer wants me to make an impact to the team and with the way he's looking to play, it suits me massively. There'll be a big crowd at the game on Saturday and York are a decent side so I'm looking forward to it."
Hartlepool United Head Coach, Kevin Phillips, added:
"I'm delighted to bring Otis to the Club. We've identified the areas that we need strengthening in, and with backing from the Chairman, we've been able to do that. Otis is technically a very good player - he looks after the ball and can split defences. He'll add some great quality to the team with his experience and attitude, and we're looking forward to working with him."
