Hartlepool United trial for released Cheltenham Town midfielder

Adulai Sambu is set to join National League club Hartlepool United on trial at the end of this month.

The Lisbon-born midfielder, who turns 20 on June 28, was released by Cheltenham Town at the end of the 2023/24 campaign

He had been with the Robins since the summer of 2021, making three League One appearances from the bench, along with another three outings in cup competitions.

Sambu appeared on loan for Cirencester Town, Redditch United, Stratford Town and Hungerford Town during his time at Cheltenham.

His aim is to remain in full-time football and he has interest from several EFL and National League clubs.

He is currently recovering from a back injury suffered towards the end of last season, but he is close to being given the all-clear to resume full training ready for the start of pre-season.
