Shrewsbury have signed Iceland Under-21 midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, 19, from Reading on a month's loan.

With Sean Thornton back at Leyton Orient, Town boss Paul Simpson wanted cover for the injured Paul Murray.

Simpson said: "Sigurdsson's a quality player. He's one of the best to come out of the Reading academy. "He's a very bright prospect."

Meanwhile, Simpson has loaned defender James Meredith to Blue Square North neighbours Telford United for a month.

The youngster has played twice for the Royals in the Carling Cup this season.
