Wolves striker Liam McAlinden has rejoined League One side Shrewsbury Town on a six-month loan deal.

McAlinden, 21, who scored three times in nine games on loan to Shrewsbury in the autumn of 2013, spent further time on loan in League One least season.

He scored four times in 19 appearances in two separate spells at Town boss Micky Mellon's former club Fleetwood.

"Hopefully I can kick on from where I left off last time," said the Republic of Ireland Under-21 striker.

"I'm delighted to be back. When I was here before I was scoring goals, doing well and enjoying my time here. But then I called back by Wolves as they were bit short and needed me.

"It's a good forward line at Shrewsbury and very potent for this league. I think between us we'll get a lot of goals."

McAlinden, who becomes Shrewsbury's eighth summer signing, has scored once in 19 appearances for Wolves, 13 of them as substitute, since signing his first professional contract in the summer of 2012.

He has a year left on his current deal at Molineux, having signed a two-year contract in April 2014.
