Luton Town midfielder Elliot Thorpe has joined up with League One side Shrewsbury Town on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old will join up with former Hatter Matt Taylor at New Meadow, with the ex-Town man having taken his second job in management this summer.

Wales Under-21 international Thorpe, who has made six appearances and had a loan at Burton Albion since moving to Kenilworth Road almost two years ago, previously worked with Taylor when he was coaching at Tottenham Hotspur.

Manager Rob Edwards said: “It’s a great opportunity for Elliot. Everyone wants to play football and it would have been difficult for him to do that this season, but he’s someone that we feel has got potential.

“He’s always been very professional. He’s been great around the place in training after he came back to us last season when we first came in, it’s just been difficult for him to play.

“Matt Taylor has already got a relationship with him because they know each other from his time at Spurs as a coach, so that’s really good when a manager knows the player, knows why he wants the player and knows his strengths. It’s a good fit and we wish Elliot and Shrewsbury well for the season.”

Good luck in your time as a Shrew, Elliot!
