Right-back Hurst, who spent close to two months on loan at the Greenhous Meadow last term, returns on a deal until the end of the season.

His arrival comes after fellow Baggies right-back Cameron Gayle, already on loan with the Shrews, was last week ruled out around a month with a hamstring injury sustained in the 1-1 draw at Crewe.

Turner told the club's official website: "James had a decent spell with us last season. He went off and played in League One for Chesterfield and also played for them at Wembley in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final.

"He's a full-back we know well and we think he's got good ability.

"We felt we needed some extra cover at the back with the injuries to Cameron Gayle, Rob Edwards and Jermaine Grandison."

It will be Hurst's second loan spell of the season having spent one month at Championship side Birmingham.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
