Sam Hart has signed for League One side Shrewsbury Town for the remainder of the season.

Hart has returned from a knee injury to play the last three games for Rovers Under-23s side, and having proven his fitness, he has signed for Sam Rickett’s side on loan until May.

Shrewsbury, who operate with a back three, were in the market for a left-sided player after seeing Ryan Giles recalled by parent club Wolves.

Hart, who has previously had three separate loan spells in League One, has been signed to fill that void and could make his debut when the Shrews travel to Fleetwood Town tomorrow afternoon.

On the horizon for the Shrews, who are 16th in the table, is an FA Cup tie at his former club Liverpool next weekend, which Hart will be available for having not featured for Rovers in the competition.

Hart signed for Rovers from the Reds in the summer of 2017, but his last Rovers appearance came in December of that year.

He has since had two loan spells at Rochdale, and finished last season with Southend United where he impressed.

The 23-year-old was a regular for Rovers in pre-season before injury struck in a pre-season friendly in Bury, and having got himself back fit, broke down again in October with a knee problem.

Hart is in to the final six months of his deal at Rovers having signed a one-year extension last January.
