Hartlepool United have signed forward Samuel Adjei on a month-long loan from Newcastle United.

Adjei, 20, has been training with Pools and made a brace of appearances for the club's reserve team.

The Sweden under-17 international has yet to make a full senior appearance for Newcastle following his move from Norkopings in January 2009.

He missed almost all of the 2010-11 season with a hamstring injury, but returned to action in September 2011.

"I've really enjoyed working with him, he's been with us for a couple of weeks," Pools' boss Neale Cooper said last month.

"He's had a hard time at Newcastle United, I think he's had major problems with his hamstrings, but he looks much fitter now and stronger."

Pools can field Adjei in Saturday's League One visit of MK Dons.
