HARTLEPOOL United target Marvin Morgan has been told by Plymouth Argyle that he has permission to try to arrange a move away from the club.

Pools boss Ronnie Moore is keen to add an experienced striker to his squad and the 31-year-old is on the manager’s radar.

Talks hadn’t progressed earlier this week but following Plymouth’s move to add former Bristol Rovers forward Ryan Brunt on an 18-month contract Morgan has been told he can leave by John Sheridan.

The 31-year-old, who has made just six starts this season, is out of contract in the summer and Pools are keen to secure his services.

Sheridan said: “I haven’t stood in Marvin’s way. I have said he can go, and the decision is down to him.

“With Ryan coming in, I think Marvin understands the situation.

“I think it’s in Marvin’s best interests.

“He hasn’t had a lot of football and I’ve spoken to him about it.

“He’s a clever lad and a good pro. I think it’s just a case of him getting some football somewhere.”

Pools host Argyle at Victoria Park on Saturday, January 31 but if Morgan did sign, he wouldn’t be able to play.

Sheridan added: “Marvin won’t play against us if he goes to Hartlepool.

“I have told them that.”
