Fraser Fyvie, the former Aberdeen midfielder, has been farmed out by Wigan Athletic to Shrewsbury Town for a month.

The 20-year-old has struggled to make an impact on the first-team at Wigan and has already been out on loan at Yeovil Town this season.

The Scotland under-21 internationalist has made just two appearances for Wigan this term - both in cup competitions - and only enjoyed another seven cup outings last season, while just making one league appearance. Fyvie, who made his debut for Aberdeen aged just 16, left Pittodrie to sign a three-year contract at Wigan in July 2012 for a reported £500,000, and will be hoping his spell with Shrewsbury can set him on the way to better times at the DW Stadium.
