Sunderland Striker Joins Until End Of Season"Mikael is a lad that I know very well and one that I have seen play a lot, he is a player who is very quick.
"He recently played in the Premier League two weeks ago and I thought we’d lost the opportunity to bring him here but he asked to be kept up with the situation.
"Andy Mangan has seen the specialist and we are waiting on the results of that. It looks like the knee problem we were nursing him through may keep him out for longer than we would like so we need to strengthen in that area.
"The players we have brought in recently have been to replace injured players rather than add to the existing players we already have available.
"We are really pleased that Sunderland have trusted us with a player they have very high hopes for and we look forward to working with Mikael." Manager Micky Mellon said:
Having enjoyed a loan spell with Fleetwood Town last season, Mandron heads to the Greenhous Meadow in time for Town's clash with Newport County this weekend.
The Frenchman, 20, has been a regular in the Black Cats' under-21s side this season, scoring the winner in Monday evening’s Barclays U21 Premier League victory over Manchester City.
Shrewsbury Town can confirm the signing of striker Mikael Mandron from Premier League side Sunderland AFC on a youth loan until the end of the season.
