Aston Villa striker Graham Burke joins Shrewsbury Town on loan until January.

Shrewsbury Town have signed Aston Villa striker Graham Burke on loan until January.

Shrews boss Graham Turner has moved for the 19-year-old following an injury to frontman John Marsden.

"We've been after [Burke] for a few months, but his involvement with Villa delayed the signing," Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"It's a shame for John having tasted his first League football to have broken a bone in his foot and he will probably be out for six to eight weeks."

Burke, a Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, has made just two first-team appearances for Villa.
