Hartlepool United have signed Mark Shelton on loan from Salford City.

The 23-year-old signed for Salford in 2017 from Alfreton Town and was with the Ammies as they won back-to-back promotions to reach the EFL.

The former Burton Albion youngster had a brief loan stint at Woking earlier this season.

Shelton’s deal includes Pools’ trip to Yeovil Town on Saturday 18th January.
