McAlinden joined the Shrews from Wolves on a three-month deal in October and scored three times in nine appearances, including a goal on his debut against Gillingham.

The 20-year-old was recalled by his parent club on Friday as the League One promotion chasers prepare for the busy festive period.

"He's a good player. He obviously got his three goals and stuck them in extremely well. He's still learning the game, still growing physically," Turner told Shrewsbury's official website.

"I think he started four or five consecutive matches, quite a substantial block of games for his first taste of league action and I thought he did well for us. I would welcome him back."

Turner added Wolves were pleased with how the loan worked out and hinted they would be happy to allow McAlinden to return to Shrewsbury in the new year.

"Liam's gone back and been quite complimentary about how he's been treated here so I don't think Wolves have any hesitation about letting him out or any of the other players come to us," Turner said.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
