Hartlepool United have signed Sunderland striker Ryan Noble on loan until the end of the season.

And the 20-year-old forward goes straight into Pools’ squad for tonight’s visit of Oldham Athletic after being handed the number 35 shirt.

SportMail reported last month that Pools were interested in a loan deal for The England U19 international after he ended a loan spell with Championship club Derby County.
