Ryan Yates joins on loan

31 January 2017

Nottingham Forest Midfielder joins until the end of the season

Shrewsbury Town can confirm the signing of Ryan Yates on loan from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season.

19 year old Yates is a central midfielder and spent the first half of the season on loan at Barrow where he made 19 appearances scoring two goals.

Yates is Town’s eighth signing of the window and Paul Hurst believes he will add depth to his midfield.

“The boy did extremely well for Barrow in his loan period and they went on a tremendous run”, Paul told ShrewsWeb.

“He had a lot of positive feedback from his time there and I think when he went they suffered a little bit in the short term.

“He’s got a mature attitude and a winning mentality and I think for the group he will bring more of that despite him being a young lad.

“Everything that we’ve seen and heard of him works into what we have here and we know that it adds more competition to that midfield area where for me we were one light because you never know what’s going to happen with injuries and suspensions.

“He’s not just been brought in to be cover. If he comes in and fits in quickly and I think he’s as good as or better than we’ve got, then he will push forward into the team.

“I know he’s delighted to join us and looking forward to the challenge of forcing himself into a League One side now after his successful spell at Barrow.”
