Shrewsbury Town have completed the signing of West Bromwich Albion midfielder David Worrall on an initial 28-day loan deal.The 18-year-old started his career with Bury and made his first-team debut in 2006, before joining Albion on a three-year deal in March 2007.He will play for Shrewsbury's reserves against Sheffield United on Wednesday.Shrewsbury manager Paul Simpson told the club website: "He's an enthusiastic and fit footballer."He added: "He can play midfield or wide in the midfield, he's not a striker but is definitely an attack-minded player. If he comes in and impresses as I'm hoping, then we will look to extend it."Worrall is the third Baggies player to join Shrewsbury on loan this season, following goalkeeper Luke Daniels and midfielder Joss Labadie.Daniels will remain on loan at the Pro-Star Stadium until the end of the season, but Labadie's spell was cut short when he broke a bone in his foot in a freak training ground accident in January.Worrall has played three reserve games for the Baggies this season and made five appearances during a loan spell at Accrington Stanley.He looks set to be included in Shrewsbury's squad to travel to Macclesfield at the weekend.
