He comes and goes quicker than Avram Grant in a whore house (BAH-ZING!) does this lad, it's the move everyone loves... Ryan Noble has once again joined Hartlepool United on loan.
Noble only recently returned to Wearside having completed a one month loan spell at 'Pools, during which he was largely unimpressive, returning just one goal in nine games. That goal was was a spectacular one, but counted for nothing as the League One side once again tasted defeat.
Noble goes straight into the squad for tonight's clash with Tranmere Rovers at Victoria Park, and he'll be looking to turn around his form in search of a permanent deal.
Yes, that's right. Time has to be up for Noble at Sunderland now. One great goal in the Peace Cup doesn't make a summer, and while it was really quite a superb strike, it would be foolish to think that he could somehow now force himself ahead of Louis Saha, Fraizer Campbell, Connor Wickham and Ji Dong-Won in the pecking order.
No fault on him, just simply not got quite enough to cut it at this level. He'll carve our a decent career in the lower leagues though, make no mistake about that.
Noble will stay at Hartlepool for another one month period.
