The 20-year-old scored twice in 13 appearances for Pools, both goals proving to be match-winning efforts against Yeovil and Leyton Orient.

Hartlepool manager Neale Cooper has already expressed his interest in bringing Noble back to the club next term, but for now the former England youth international is focused on showing Black Cats boss Martin O'Neill what he can do.

He told the Hartlepool Mail: "I think I'll go back to Sunderland a better player for my time at Hartlepool. It's just a completely different experience and you've got to adapt pretty quickly.

"You're playing against boys at reserve-team level, but in League One it's men - there are some big lads. You've got to put yourself about a bit.

"I spoke to a couple of the coaches (from Sunderland) and I know some have been to watch me and put reports in. That's a good thing because I want to make it at Sunderland."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
