Donald Love Signs For Town

12 July 2019

Shrewsbury Town are delighted to confirm the signing of Donald Love after he was released by Sunderland.

Love put pen to paper on a two-year deal with Town after completing his medical early this afternoon.

The 24-year-old is a right-sided defender and adds a great option to the Town defence.

Donald progressed through the Academy ranks at Manchester United and made appearances in the Carabao Cup and Europa League for United. He had a loan spell with Wigan Athletic and joined Sunderland in the summer of 2016.  He has also played a number of times for the Scottish national side at U17, U19 and U21 level.

Town manager Sam Ricketts has been looking to bring Donald in for a while and is pleased to have finally got the deal done.

We grabbed a quick word with Sam in between training sessions in Portugal.

“I am delighted to have signed Donald”, said Sam.

“He is a young player with great potential and pedigree and adds more quality to our defence.

“His family live locally so it’s a perfect fit and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

We will speak with Sam more about this news early next week when we sit down to do press.
