Newcastle United striker Adam Campbell has joined fellow North East side Hartlepool United on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old, a product of the renowned Wallsend Boys Club, made his competitive debut for the Magpies against Greek side Atromitos in the Europa League in 2012. He has since had several other loan spells at Carlisle United, St Mirren and Fleetwood Town.

Campbell has been handed the number 29 shirt and could make his Pools debut against York City on Saturday.
