Hartlepool United beat off a host of clubs to secure the signature of Scottish international Kevin Kyle. The former Sunderland striker Kyle joined from Coventry City where he'd been pushed out by manager Chris Coleman.

Kyle started his career with the Black Cats, spending time on loan in the lower leagues before making the step up to the first team. He struggled to make the step up and, after injury troubles, joined Coventry in August 2006 for 600,000.

After a poor start he found his first team chances limited and, after the dismissal of manager Iain Dowie, was frozen out completely. After a failed loan spell at Wolves he joined Pools in October 2008. The one month loan was then extended in November.

"Despite showing promise in his first month the loan signing of Kevin Kyle has been a complete disappointment. His poor scoring record, lack of effort and general disruption to the side mean that Pools are unlikely to seek a permenant deal"
