Button eases Shrews keeper crisis

Shrewsbury have signed Tottenham goalkeeper David Button on loan until January 2010 as cover for Chris Neal, who is out with a broken finger.

The 20-year-old has already made 17 League appearances, after loan spells with Bournemouth, Dagenham and Crewe.

"Training with top keepers at Spurs can only be good for me in the long run," he told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"But playing in games puts you in the limelight, so I'm sure Tottenham will be watching and I hope I can do well."

Button earned his first cap for England at Under-20 level in a friendly with Italy in February this year, having previously represented the Under-19s.

He has also tasted first-team action with Spurs, coming on as a late sub for Carlo Cudicini in the Carling Cup second round tie at Doncaster in August.
