Hartlepool have added another defender to their squad with the signing of Timi Odusina on loan from Premier League side Norwich City until the end of the season.

The versatile 19-year-old spent the second half of last season working under Dave Challinor at AFC Fylde and the Pools boss was keen to bring him to Victoria Park for this term’s run-in.

“Timi is someone I had with me last season at Fylde and he did a good job for us,” Challinor explained.

“He’s a centre-back by trade, though perhaps not the typical centre-back at this level in terms of size, but he’s really athletic and very, very quick so he will allow us to defend high up the pitch and give us cover at the back.”
