HARTLEPOOL United have completed the signing of trialist Nialle Rodney and sealed the professional contract of teenager Brad Walker.

Striker Rodney, 22, has been training with Pools this summer and, having scored two goals during the pre-season friendlies, has now won a permanent stay at Victoria Park.

Midfielder Walker, meanwhile, has impressed over the past few weeks and manager Colin Cooper told SportMail at the weekend that the 17-year-old had earned his first pro deal.

Both will now be included in the squad which travels to Rochdale for Saturday’s season opener.
