Shrewsbury have signed former England under-19 striker Temitope Obadeyi from Bolton on a month's loan deal.

The 20-year-old has made three substitute appearances for the Premier League side and is a regular in their reserve team.

"I'm delighted to come here to play league football, and showcase what I can do," he told BBC Radio Shropshire.

Last season, he had loan spells at Swindon and Rochdale, helping Dale win promotion from League Two.

"I hope I can do that again with Shrewsbury," he added.

"Graham Turner sold the place to me, but I know Shrewsbury are a good club with a good stadium, who are doing well in League Two."

Obadeyi started as a junior at Coventry and joined Bolton in 2008 ahead of a number of high-profile clubs.

Shrews boss Turner said: "He's a big strong lad, he's quick, and he can play in a number of positions. He's a useful addition to our squad."
