Akwasi Asante: Birmingham striker during loan spell at Northampton

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.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
