Shrewsbury Town's on-loan defender Jack Grimmer has been recalled by his parent club, Championship side Fulham.

Grimmer, 20, has impressed in his seven appearances for the Town since commencing his loan on 18 October.

His loan was quickly extended to tie him to the Meadow until January.

Grimmer's loan arrangement with Fulham
Although he was allowed to play for Shrewsbury in the League Cup, the League Two promotion chasers were not permitted to play Grimmer in the FA Cup, as Fulham did not want him cup-tied.

But Fulham have now triggered a recall clause in the loan agreement as they are missing a number of players in Grimmer's position through suspension and injury.

"Jack has been a delight to work with and is a credit to Fulham and to himself," said Town manager Micky Mellon.

"He has continued to develop with the games he's played for us and returns to Fulham a better player for it."
