Versatile attacker Jonathan Franks sealed a return to Victoria Park when he put pen to paper on a contract with Pools in August 2017.
The Stockton-born star previously played for Pools between 2012 and 2015, making 143 appearances and scoring 16 goals following his arrival from his Middlesbrough.
Franks left Pools to link up with Ross County and he had success north of the border, playing his part as the Scottish outfit lifted the League Cup in 2015/16.
Comfortable playing on either flank or in a central striking role, Franks had been training with Pools following his exit from Ross and did enough to earn a deal from boss Craig Harrison.
