Pools close on defender deal

Hartlepool manager Mick Wadsworth is close to sealing a loan deal for an unnamed Championship defender.Wadsworth is keen to recruit defensive cover before the weekend's match with Dagenhame after skipper Sam Collins was ruled out of the game with a knee injury.The mystery player he is looking at is a young 6ft 4in centre-back who turned out for Pools` reserves in their 6-0 friendly win over Northern League club Horden on Tuesday night.Wadsworth told the Sunderland Echo: "We don't want to say too much just yet, but we're working at a deal."It's not easy to do things quickly, but we've had a centre-half in who I like the look of so we'll see what happens."
