Hartlepool have completed the signing of midfielder Matty Dolan on a one-month loan from Middlesbrough.

The 20-year-old, who will go straight into the Pools squad for Saturday's game with Fleetwood, quickly emerged as one of Colin Cooper's key targets when he was appointed as boss in the summer.

He signed a long-term professional contract at The Riverside in the summer of 2010 and has since gained league experience with a loan spell at Yeovil last season.
