Millwall striker Shaun Batt has joined League Two promotion hopefuls Crawley on loan.

The 24-year-old, who recently recovered from a cruciate injury which kept him out for 18 months, has moved to Sussex on an initial four-week deal.

"Shaun Batt is a talented lad who I have watched many times," Town boss Steve Evans told the club website.

"He has good technique and explosive pace. That gives Championship defenders a headache and will cause League Two defenders even more problems.

"In fairness to the lad he had a number of options in respect of clubs wanting to sign him so I am delighted he has joined us.

"I am grateful to Millwall manager Kenny Jackett who spoke very favourably to Shaun about coming to Crawley."

Batt could make his Crawley debut against Morecambe on Wednesday night.
