Hartlepool have signed Sunderland striker Roy O'Donovan on loan until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old, who has struggled to secure a regular place with the Premier League outfit, has impressed while training with Pools over the last week and could make his debut against Carlisle on Tuesday night.

Director of Sport Chris Turner told his club's official website: "It's an opportunity for him to show us what we can do.

"He has genuine pace which I feel we've been lacking. I think he'll freshen things up for us and hopefully enjoy his spell with the club."
