SHREWS­BURY Town have agreed to sign de­fender An­thony Ger­rard, de­spite the free agent be­ing weeks away from full fit­ness.

Ger­rard, the 29-year-old cousin of former Liver­pool and England cap­tain Steven, has been train­ing with the club for a fort­night, but Shrews boss Micky Mel­lon has called for pa­tience.

“An­thony still has a bit of train­ing to do be­fore he’s there,” said Mel­lon. “But when he’s ready, he’ll be avail­able to us.

“He hasn’t done any­thing for a long time so I wouldn’t get car­ried away say­ing ‘he’s im­mi­nently avail­able’. He’s work­ing his socks off, but I’ve got to be care­ful only to put him in when he’s ready.”
