Former Celtic midfielder Paul Hartley turned down an approach from Pools earlier this week, instead choosing to remain with Scottish Championship side Cove Rangers.

The news forced Pools to issue a statement with regards to their disappointment towards their dealings being leaked before also stating they were close to making an announcement on their vacancy after the dismissal of Graeme Lee over three weeks ago.

But that appointment might have hit another setback late in the week when Halifax’ Pete Wild was confirmed as the new Barrow boss.

Wild has been on the radar of Pools for some time, including last year following the exit of Dave Challinor only for the 38-year-old to remain with the National League Shaymen.

So just who do Pools turn to now in their hunt for a new manager?

Here at The Mail we take a look at who remains in the frame.
