Hartlepool United manager Graeme Lee has confirmed there is a recall clause in the loan deal which took striker Olufela Olomola to Yeovil Town.

The former Southampton youngster returned for his third spell in Somerset last week having been out of favour in the North East, featuring just five times under the new boss.

He joined Pools in the summer, signed by then-manager Dave Challinor who has since joined Stockport County, having impressed on trial.

Lee told the Hartlepool Mail: “The conversations with players are difficult when they’re not playing.

“He had two fantastic games in the cup, he was exciting. But then he comes out of the squad.

So it was a one of them where he got an opportunity and I said ‘I can be selfish and keep you with us’ because he can impact in the formation we’re playing now, but I don’t want to be selfish.

“I said ‘if you want to go and do this and get some games in [you can].

The only stipulation I had was to get a call back on him because if we need him then I’ll call him back because he could be one who could impact the team, and he was happy with that.”
