Hartlepool United have signed Middlesbrough defender Adam Jackson on loan for a month.

Jackson, 21, is yet to make his senior debut for Boro and failed to make an appearance for Coventry during a similar short-term spell this season.

The signing follows the news Harry Worley will be out for up to 14 weeks with an ankle injury, and Jackson is eligible for Pools' FA Cup fixtures.

He could make his debut in Saturday's first round tie against Cheltenham.
