Callum Burton has returned to Nuneaton Town on a six-month loan deal, subject to usual FA clearance being granted.

The Shrewsbury Town stopper, who turns 20 next week, previously played for the club during the 2014/15 season when he made three nuneatonappearances during an emergency loan spell over the festive period.

Burton broke into the Shrewsbury first-team recently and has played for England at under-16s, under-17s and under-18 level.

Boro manager Kevin Wilson said: “I’ve made no secret that I want at least two people fighting for every position in the first-team.

“Zeus De La Paz departed last week leaving us with just the one keeper so having Callum here counteracts that.

“I tried to get him to come to the Boro last summer before we landed Jordan Smith, but Shrewsbury did not want to let him leave as their first choice keeper had got injured.

“But now the time is right for them to let him come out and play some senior football once more, and I hope we will see the best of him in his six-month loan spell here.

“He’s a talented lad who knows a little bit about the club and non-league football in general so it’s a good move for him and us.”

The loan spell ends after the game against Tamworth on 1st January 2017.
