Evan Horwood: Has dropped into the free agent pool

The 27-year-old old defender has turned down the offer of a new contract at Hartlepool United and saw his departure from Victoria Park confirmed on Tuesday.

Horwood is set to take on a new challenge after three years at Hartlepool.

He made well over 100 appearances for the club over the course of his stay, but feels the time is right to start afresh elsewhere.

It is believed that a host of clubs in League One have already set their sights on securing his services.

It is easy to see why, with Horwood regarded as a key contributor to many of Hartlepool's goals over the past two years.

He is able to influence proceedings at either end of the field and is likely to have a number of options to consider over the coming weeks.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
