The future of Jake Cassidy remains in the balance – but should no acceptable offer be tabled for the striker he is set to stay at Hartlepool United, say The Hartlepool Mail.

Cassidy was made available for transfer at the start of the summer, and despite some tentative interest, particularly from the north of the border, no firm offer has been made for the former Wolves and Tranmere striker. And as a result, the 25-year-old remains a part of manager Matthew Bates’ Pools plans for the National League campaign, even with the signing of Marcus Dinanga, Luke James and Niko Muir. Cassidy knows, though, that can all change with a phone call, text or email.

He’s not letting that uncertainty have an impact on his summer preparation though, as Tuesday nights’ goal and assist showed in the 4-0 victory at Shildon. Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s friendly at Spennymoor Town, the frontman said: “I understand the reasons why I have been made available.

“Speaking to the gaffer I know where I stand. But that could all change if an offer comes in.

“If it does we will all obviously have to look at it. At the moment all I am concentrating on is getting fit.”
