Hartlepool United first-team coach Mick Wadsworth says he is satisfied with the squad he has assembled this summer and has ruled out further additions.

Wadsworth has completed deals to sign Nolberto Solano, Nathan Luscombe, James Poole and Colin Nish, and released 10 players at the end of last term.

"We're not now looking to recruit," Wadsworth told BBC Tees.

"We're not looking at any other players or trialists, this is the squad we've got and we're very happy with it."

Pools have bolstered their options with the introduction of former youth team players such as Paul Johnson, Darren Holden and Josh Rowbotham.

"This emphasis on development is very important," Wadsworth added.

"I'm looking forward to the next two or three years to see some of young players really come from where they've started in the youth team and come right through to be our main players.

"Possibly some of them will become saleable assets because we need to do that."

The former DR Congo manager extended his stay at Victoria Park last month, after taking over from Chris Turner until the end of the season in September 2010.
