Alex Neil made young Hartlepool United striker Connor Simpson his third signing of the January transfer window.
The 17-year-old signed a two-and-a-half-year professional deal with PNE, which keeps him at Deepdale until at least the summer of 2020.
The 2017/18 season saw the 6’5” forward break into Hartlepool’s first team, scoring his first goal against Maidstone United in the National League.
Simpson, who is an exciting prospect and has been earmarked as one for the future, will wear the No.27 shirt at North End.
