Leyton Orient winger Joe Keith has ended his month-long loan at Shrewsbury Town for family reasons.

The 28-year-old had joined the League Two club late last month after falling down the pecking order at Brisbane Road.

However, Keith has decided to return to East London for family reasons and train with his parent club.

Though his Gay Meadow loan has been cut short, Keith will not be available to Martin Ling's side until November 28, as a club cannot recall a player during the first month of a loan spell.

Shrews boss Gary Peters revealed the reasons behind Keith's departure from the Shropshire outfit.

"Joe has had a few problems which have meant that he couldn't train with us in Shrewsbury," Peters told the club's official website.

"He's got a young lad who has been upset when Joe has been in Shrewsbury, so it looks like it would be a long-term problem.

"We've agreed that Joe can cut short his loan period and return to Orient, but that means he can't play for anyone else until the end of the 28 days."
