ZAINE Francis-Angol is set to be the latest player to commit his future to Hartlepool United after agreeing to a new deal. 

The left-back is set to put pen-to-paper on a fresh contract that will keep him at the club until the end of the upcoming League Two season at the very least.

Francis-Angol has been training with club since they returned for pre-season while the club and player have been in talks over a new contract. He was involved in Pools friendly win over Runcorn Linnets at the weekend. 

Francis-Angol follows in the footsteps of Gary Liddle, Nicky Featherstone, Mark Shelton, Timi Odusina, Ben Killip and Jamie Sterry in renewing their contracts with the club. 

The 28-year-old has only made five appearances for Pools since signing on a free transfer from Boreham Wood in April but is a trusted member of the squad having played under Dave Challinor at AFC Fylde. 

He made a vital contribution to Pools National League play-off final win over Torquay United coming on as a substitute in the second half at Ashton Gate. 

Luke Molyneux has also been training with the club since the expiration of his contract and it's understood the player and club have held positive talks over a new deal.
