Hartlepool sign Sunderland midfielder Nathan Luscombe
Hartlepool United have agreed to sign Sunderland midfielder Nathan Luscombe when his contract expires on 1 July.
The 22-year-old has been on trial at Victoria Park, taking part in training and has enjoyed two reserve-team outings for Mick Wadsworth's side.
During his time at Sunderland, the Gateshead-born player has made just one first-team appearance, against Blackburn in the 2008-09 FA Cup.
Luscombe becomes Pools' first signing for the 2011-12 season.
