Stevenage are targeting Hartlepool United midfielder Michael Woods according to reports.


Stevenage are interested in Hartlepool United midfielder Michael Woods, according to reports.

The Hartlepool Mail are reporting that Boro, Exeter City and another unnamed Sky Bet League Two club are chasing the in-form midfielder.

The 27-year-old has made 26 National League appearances this season and hit a rich vein of scoring form for Pools, scoring seven in his past nine games.

Hartlepool boss Craig Harrison is desperate to keep the midfielder but with the club currently struggling financially, he may be forced to sell Woods.

The Chelsea academy graduate has plenty of Football League experience, having played for Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers and Hartlepool.

Woods has represented England at youth level, playing for the U16, U17 and U19 sides.

Stevenage boss Darren Sarll has already added three signings to his squad this month, with Tom King, Ben Sheaf and Luke Amos all arriving at the Lamex on loan deals.
