OFFICIAL: Noble returns to Pools on-loan
Young striker Ryan Noble has this afternoon (Friday) joined Hartlepool United on-loan for the second time.
The 19 year-old hitman joins Neale Cooper's side on an initial one-month loan deal.
Noble spent the final two months of last season on-loan with the local League One outfit, scoring twice in nine games.
Cooper has made it clear throughout the summer that was keen to re-sign the prolific academy graduate and with Sunderland's striking ranks fit to bursting, Martin O'Neill has sanctioned a loan move.
Speaking to hufc.com Cooper spoke of his delgiht:
'He came in last year and did really well for us and fitted in straight away; I've been chasing it up but he's been in and about the First Team plans at Sunderland this year.
'I'm delighted we've managed to do the deal now and I have to say Sunderland have been really helpful with us - they want him to get games and I think he will really thrive playing off big Steve Howard.'
Pools have made an abysmal start to the new campaign, securing just one victory from their opening nine games.
Good luck Ryan!
