Donald Love holds up a Salford shirt after signing a one-year deal at The Peninsula StadiumSalford City is pleased to announce the signing of Donald Love!

The defender, who left Shrewsbury Town at the end of the last season, has signed a one-year deal with the club.

Starting out at Manchester United, the 26-year-old had a spell on loan at Wigan Athletic before making his Red Devils debut in February 2016. The following summer he joined Sunderland and spent three seasons at The Stadium of Light before moving to Shrewsbury, where he made 56 appearances across two seasons.

After committing himself at The Peninsula Stadium for the current season, where he has twice played against Salford for United in pre-season games in 2015 and 2016, the latest summer recruit said:

“It’s really good to get here, get going and hopefully we can do really well this year.

“It’s a really good setup and I can’t wait to get going on the pitch. The Manager’s been really good with me, he’s a really nice guy and hopefully I can come in and do well for him.

“I can play a few positions, hopefully I can come and make an impact on the team, and hopefully get up to people, get. around the pitch get after the ball.”

Welcoming signing number 12 of the summer, Gary Bowyer added:

“It’s great to get Donald in, he has been training with us and will provide competition in a variety of positions which will be a big asset for us this season.

“He has quality on the ball, and he is a competitive lad who we are looking forward to working with.”

We would like to offer Donald and his family a warm welcome to The Peninsula Stadium, and we wish you a successful stay!

The defender’s registration wasn’t completed in time for tonight’s Papa John’s Trophy tie at Oldham Athletic, but he will be in contention for Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two visit to Carlisle.
