Jonathan Franks

Hartlepool United have completed the signing of forward Jonathan Franks following his release by Middlesbrough.

Franks, 22, spent four seasons at the Riverside Stadium, scoring three goals in 30 appearances, but also spent time on loan with Yeovil and Oxford United.

Yeovil tried to sign Franks and former Boro team-mate Jonathan Grounds earlier this week but the duo turned down the offers.

The length of Franks's contract with Hartlepool has not been disclosed.
