Sunderland striker Lynch: Noble convinced me about Hartlepool move
"As soon as I heard about the interest from Hartlepool I had a word with Ryan and he told me how much he enjoyed his time here," Lynch told Hartlepool's official website.
"He told me it would be a great move for me to make and gave me some info about the club from his time here and that made me more eager to come to Hartlepool.
"I've loved it so far, they're a great set of lads here and I've fitted in really easily.
"That has definitely helped and made things easier but even the other lads in the squad have been brilliant so this is a great opportunity for me to enjoy my first loan experience."
