Liam McAlinden has not featured for Wolves this season

League Two side Crawley Town have signed Wolves striker Liam McAlinden on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has scored two goals in 19 appearances for the Championship club since making his first-team debut in April 2013.

McAlinden had a spell at League One side Shrewsbury earlier this season, netting once in 11 appearances.

He becomes Crawley's first signing since Turkish businessman Ziya Eren completed his takeover of the club.

"I'd like to thank our new owners who have sanctioned the move," Reds boss Mark Yates told the club website.external-link

"Since Rhys Murphy went back to Oldham we have been a bit short up front and the new owners have recognised this and acted straight away."
