Are Hartlepool going to lose Luke James before the end of the week? The reports from Sky Sports are saying that we will with the interest building in him and we’re even ‘braced’ for offers to come before the transfer window closes.

The League 1 apprentice of the year from last season has found the back of the net 11 times for us this season and is one of the many young prospects that are regularly watched by scouts that come to the Vic.

James will leave us sooner of later but it’ll take a very good offer for Coops, or the club, to consider selling him mid season wouldn’t it? Staying in League 2 is the main priority but any outside chance of making the play offs would be dependant on keeping the likes of James.

I don’t think we’ll lose him this week, the summer perhaps but not before 11pm on Friday, then again I could be wrong.
