Hartlepool have signed strikers Andrew Nelson and Louis Rooney on loan from Sunderland and Plymouth respectively.

Both players join the League Two side until the end of the season.

Nelson, 19, is yet to make a senior appearance for the Black Cats but has played two under-21 games in the EFL Trophy this season.

Northern Ireland Under-21 international Rooney, 20, has played just three times this season but scored twice against the Pools on his Argyle debut in May.

He was on the bench for Plymouth's 2-1 defeat at Yeovil on Tuesday night, with the club saying his move to the north-east went through just 17 seconds before the transfer window shut.
