Hartlepool United have signed Blackburn Rovers’ Tom White on loan.

The 23-year-old midfielder joins Dave Challinor’s side on what Pools say is ‘a short-term loan deal’.

White played a part in Barrow’s promotion to the EFL last season and linked up again with manager Ian Evatt this season at Bolton Wanderers.

He returned to his parent club last month.

White told Hartlepool’s website: “I’m obviously very excited to finally be here, I nearly signed for the club two years ago, and being a North East lad, it’s always been a club I’ve followed with interest.”
