Sam Hart is looking to make a name for himself during his time at League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Hart signed for the Shrews on Friday and was an unused substitute in their weekend draw at Fleetwood Town.

It is a fourth loan spell away from Rovers since signing from Liverpool in August 2017 for the 23-year-old whose deal expires in the summer.

But  after a productive spell in the final months of last season with Southend, the left back is hoping to kick on at Shrewsbury having just returned to full fitness following a knee problem.

He said: “I am really excited to see what the next couple of months holds. It happened very quickly.

“I got pulled by the Blackburn manager and he asked what are my thoughts on going to Shrewsbury. I thought it would be an amazing move for me. It’s quite local too, so it was perfect – I am excited to get started.

“I have played in League One on a couple of occasions. I’m hoping to make a name for myself at Shrewsbury.”

Hart could come up against former side Liverpool this weekend when his new club face the Premier League table-toppers in the FA Cup.

And Hart admits that was on his mind from the moment he was made aware of the interest.

“Playing Liverpool next was the first thing the gaffer told me at Blackburn, so hopefully I can get the shirt to play,” Hart told his new club’s website.

“It would be amazing to be a part of it as I grew up playing there. To put a shirt on against them would be fantastic.

“I am really excited to hopefully build on something here at Shrewsbury.”
