Hartlepool United have signed striker Luke James from Peterborough United, the club’s official website has confirmed.
James started his career at Victoria Park, where he scored 19 goals in 90 appearances for the Pools. He was snapped up by Posh but has only scored once in the 32 games he has played for the club.
The Englishman has spent the first part of this season on loan at Bradford City, where he hasn’t scored in his nine appearances for the club.
The winger, who can also play as a striker, may not have a potent goal scoring record, but has a history of putting together good seasons when his team needs it. In the 2013/14 season, he scored 16 goals for Hartlepool and earned both fans’ and players’ player of the year.
James’s last appearance was the 0-0 draw with Bury earlier in an FA Cup replay, and hasn’t featured for Peterborough all season.
Hartlepool sit 21st place in League Two, just four points above the relegation zone but with two games in hand on Dagenham & Redbridge in 23rd place.
