NEWCASTLE United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman has joined Hartlepool United on a one-month youth loan.

The 17-year-old goalkeeper will remain with the League Two side until Tuesday, October 21.

However, as part of the deal, Woodman will still be eligible to represent Newcastle at Under-21 and Under-18 level.

Highly-rated Woodman was part of the England side which won the Under-17 European Championship in the summer, and saved a penalty in the shootout win over Holland in the final.
