Hartlepool have extended the loan stay of Middlesbrough midfielder Matty Dolan for a further month.

The 20-year-old started six games for Pools during his initial one-month loan spell and manager Colin Cooper was keen to keep him at the club.

"We're delighted to be able to keep Matty here for another month," Cooper told the club's official website.

"Obviously with youth loans you have to take it month by month but I'm really pleased that Matty is enjoying what he's doing and he's with us for another 28 days.

"He wants to get out into the big wide world and test himself - he did it with Yeovil last year and we're pleased he's here doing it with us this year and we'll keep him as long as possible."
