Sunderland midfielder Cattermole admits considering Hartlepool move

Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole admits he was ready to quit for Hartlepool United earlier this season.

Cattermole was so desperate he felt like taking up a light-hearted offer from Hartlepool boss Colin Cooper to join the League Two outfit on loan.

“We spoke after a behind-closed-doors game and he joked I could always get a game with him,” he said.

“I nearly took him up on it. I just wanted to play football.”
