HARTLEPOOL United have secured the services of midfielder Matty Dolan for a further month after boss Colin Cooper reached an agreement with Middlesbrough.
Dolan has already spent two months with his hometown club and has played an integral role in the transformation of Cooper’s team.
The third deal was concluded this morning, meaning that the 20-year-old can line up in the middle of the park tonight at Bury.
Dolan has formed a highly-effective central combination with Simon Walton and Cooper is delighted to have retained the Boro product.
“I’m pleased we’ve managed to secure Matthew for another month,” said Cooper.
“He is available for tonight and we’ll crack on for another month and then see where we go from there.”
The deal means Dolan will be available up to and including the provisional trip to Southend United on Saturday, January 4, on FA Cup third round weekend.
