Kyle Vassell and Richie Wellens sign for Shrewsbury Town
League One strugglers Shrewsbury Town have taken their tally of January transfer window signings to four by recruiting young striker Kyle Vassell and veteran midfielder Richie Wellens.
Vassell, 22, has been loaned for the rest of the season by Peterborough.
Wellens, 35, has signed an 18-month deal after his release by Doncaster.
Vassell joined Posh from non-league Bishop's Stortford in November 2013. He has scored just one league goal in 16 months, but he did net three times on loan for Dagenham & Redbridge in their run to to Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie at Everton.
Manchester-born Wellens had been expected to join Shrewsbury's League One rivals Oldham Athletic, where he had been on loan.
He has made 686 appearances in a career that began on Manchester United's books and has since taken in Blackpool, Oldham (twice), Doncaster (twice), Leicester City and Ipswich Town.
