Shrewsbury Town have signed teenage striker Niall Ennis from neighbours Wolves on a season-long loan.

The England Under-18 international has been a regular for the Wolves Under-23 side and has also been part of the first-team squad during pre-season.

Ennis, 18, is likely to make his first Shrewsbury appearance in a pre-season friendly against Burton on Saturday.

Meanwhile, young goalkeeper Callum Burton has joined Championship side Hull City for an undisclosed fee.

Burton, 20, who played for England at Under-16, 17 and 18 level, had been offered a new deal by Shrewsbury. But he will now become part of the Tigers' Under-23 development squad, having signed a one-year deal, with the option for a further 12 months.

Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst has now made 11 close-season signings, five of them loan players, while 13 players (including last season's six loan men) have now left the League One club.
