Noble would 'love' to return to Hartlepool
Sunderland youngster Ryan Noble has admitted he would 'love' to make a loan return to Hartlepool United next season.
The 20 year-old academy product has made a positive impression at Victoria Park, scoring twice since joining on loan.
Noble grabbed his first for Pools in a 1-0 win at Yeovil Town - his first professional goal, before bagging a second at the weekend in the 2-1 win over Leyton Orient.
Speaking to The Hartlepool Mail, Noble said:
"I`d love to come back here next year.
"The chance to play every week is much better than going anywhere else and being left wondering.
"It`s right on my doorstep as well and it`s a club and set of lads I really like.'
Noble has been a regular scorer at reserve and youth team level but has failed to impress in loan spells at Championship sides Watford and Derby County in the last couple of years.
