Hartlepool United have signed Rakish Bingham following his departure from League Two rivals Mansfield Town.
London-born Bingham previously played five games for Pools during a month-long loan spell earlier this season.
The 21-year-old made 32 appearances for Mansfield in all competitions after signing from Wigan in September 2014.
"When he was here during last season he did really well and we missed his pace when he went back," Hartlepool manager Ronnie Moore told the club's website.
"He gives us an out, he is always a threat and hopefully there will be plenty more goals to come from him as well."
Hartlepool narrowly avoided relegation from the Football League this season, as they finished 22nd in League Two, one place below Mansfield and four points clear of the drop.
