Hartlepool have signed Middlesbrough striker Charlie Wyke on a month's loan in time for Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie against Bradford City.

The 19-year-old has been training with Pools and joins Sunderland loanees Craig Lynch and Ryan Noble in the squad at Victoria Park.

"From day one he looked really good," Pools manager Neale Cooper told the club website.

"He's a good size, has good feet and has shown a great attitude."

He added: "Charlie is renowned for his finishing and we've been impressed by that, but overall he's just fitted in really well so it will be good to take a look at him in competitive action."
