Striker Asante could make his League One debut for the Shrews in Friday's game at Carlisle.

The 20-year-old made his first-team bow for the Blues during last season's Europa League home game against Nacional.

He has also had a previous loan spell with Northampton at the end of December 2011 when he made four appearances and scored one goal.

Central defender Deaman, 19, who joined the Blues in the summer of 2011 from Wrexham's academy, trained with his new Cheltenham team-mates on Thursday and is available to face Port Vale on Friday.

"I've known Jack for a couple of years and he is a good player and athlete," Town manager Mark Yates told the club's official website.

"We need to cover every eventuality and we are a little light in defence so Jack will give us some protection. He knows what to expect here and he is ready to try and prove himself."

Cheltenham had earlier also extended the loan stay of Reading centre-back Michael Hector, 20, until the end of the season.

errible night all round. This was a team there for the taking yet I fail to recall their 'keeper making a notable save. Sterling decided to have his worst game ever, Coutinho only provided about two good passes all game and Balotelli continues to frustrate. The less said about the set piece defending the better. Daniel Sturridge cannot came back soon enough. The lack of a real threat in the final third is so surprising, no killer pass, not testing...
