Defender Scott Harrison will only leave Hartlepool United if Craig Harrison gives the deal the green light.

The Mail understands that Harrison, who could be involved for Pools today at Dagenham & Redbridge, already has a deal in place to leave this month – with a number of National League and Football League sides inquiring about his availability in recent weeks. And, having fallen down the pecking order at Pools this season, Harrison would let his defender go.

But, without a suitable replacement and in the midst of an injury crisis, the Pools boss is finding it difficult to give any departure the seal of approval.

“Scott is with us. He will be with us until I deem he is not needed,” said Harrison of the former Sunderland central defender.

“He has been injured but is now back on the training pitch.”
