Craig Harrison is confident of adding a new signing at Hartlepool United – having had the frustration of three knock-backs in the last fortnight.

The boss told SportMail that three targets turned down Pools on geographical grounds.

But Harrison, who has watched the Under 23 sides of Sunderland, Newcastle and Middlesbrough over the past week, has “promising scenarios on the horizon.” The 39-year-old is confident of bringing in an attacking talent though cautioned that they “don’t grow on trees”.

He said: “We’d like to get someone in, a striker, attacking midfielder or winger, whatever, someone who can chip in with goals.

“There is certainly a couple of promising scenarios on the horizon, hopefully.

“We have to be realistic about who we are, where we are and who we can attract at this point in the season. In an ideal world, we’d love to be bringing in a senior player because we haven’t got a senior player at that end of the pitch.”
