The Hartlepool Mail report that Craig Hignett has revealed Hartlepool United chairman Raj Singh is willing to splash the cash, if needed, to land a new manager.

And the director of football has also made it clear the new boss will be backed in the transfer market by the Pools owner.

Hignett confirmed Singh is willing to pay compensation to land a manager currently in employment at another outfit – if it’s in the best interests of the club. This would be an unprecedented move for Pools, who even in times of IOR ownership would shop solely in the ‘out of work’ managers category.

“We will not rule anything out. It all depends on the candidates,” said Hignett.

“We can bring players in. We prefer our own players to loan ones, of course. But we are where we are at the moment.

“The new man will have his own targets and ideas and obviously we will crack on with them.

“There is a bit of room to bring players in and we will not rule out going for another manager in work.”
