Transfer window set to close later today
Shrewsbury Town are poised to bring in a player from a Premier League club ahead of the emergency loan window closing today.
Manager Graham Turner has reached agreement with the club in question and hopes to be in a position to reveal the player's identity later.
"I'm always wary until we've got actual confirmation from the Football League that everything is settled, but we've got one young player coming in from a Premiership club," said the boss.
"That should all go through. I've agreed with the club but the player doesn't know yet.
"They've told me he'll have no problems in accepting what they're putting to him.
"It's been quite a strenuous couple of days in terms of the phone calls. Most of them have been without fruition, most of them have been disappointing in the end despite certain encouragement from clubs, players and agents.
"What we've wanted to bring in hasn't materialised but it hasn't been for the want of trying. The difficulty is that we want someone to come and make an impact if we possibly can.
"But the young player we've got coming in we've seen him play a number of times and I'm sure that he will strengthen our squad."
