Midfielder Fredriksen joins Pools

Hartlepool United

Hartlepool United have signed midfielder Jon-Andre Fredriksen from Norwegian second-tier side Sarpsborg.

The 27-year-old, who is the club's sixth signing of the summer, was spotted by manager Chris Turner on a scouting trip to Norway.

"Jon-Andre is a very adaptable player who can operate in several positions," Turner told the club's website.

"I'm bringing him to the club predominantly as competition for the wide-left area."

He added: "He will start the game on Wednesday against [Dutch side] SC Cambuur so he can quickly get used to the way we play and fit in with the lads.

"He's been playing regularly for a couple of months already so his fitness will be good. I know having seen him play that his is a high-energy game."
