West Brom academy graduate Shaun Donnellan joins Yeovil Town

Baggies academy graduate Shaun Donnellan has joined League Two Yeovil Town.

Shaun Donnellan, right, was on loan at Walsall with Tyler Roberts this season.

The 21-year-old centre-back, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Walsall, has joined the Glovers on a free transfer and signed a one-and-a-half year contract.

Yeovil manager Darren Way said: "Coming down from a division higher and with his international experience, Shaun is a fantastic addition to the squad and has a bright future.

"He's been playing with former Glover Joe Edwards so he'll have heard good things about the club and I look forward to working with him."

Donnellan rose through the Albion academy and signed his first professional contract in 2015.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international went out on loan to Worcester City and Dagenham & Redbridge in non-league before this season's stint at the Banks's Stadium.

But he's been allowed to leave the Baggies for pastures new.
