Salford City are close to strengthening their defensive options on transfer deadline day with the signing of right-back Donald Love, sources have exclusively told Football League World.
The 26-year-old is currently a free agent having departed League One side Shrewsbury Town over the summer, where he made 42 appearances over a two-year period.
Love has been training with the Ammies over the summer though and on the final day of the transfer window he has done enough to impress manager Gary Bowyer and earn himself a contract with the club.
Having come through the academy of Manchester United, Love made two senior appearance for the Red Devils in 2016 before being snapped up by Sunderland in a joint deal with Paddy McNair.

The majority of Love’s time at the Stadium of Light was plagued by injury and he spent most of the 2018-19 campaign on the sidelines with an ankle problem, and he was released by the Black Cats in 2019 and moved on to Shrewsbury.
Love will be aiming to resurrect his career at Moor Lane under Bowyer as Salford aim to push for promotion to League One this season.
