FreeRadius logging for Eduroam

I have FreeRadius 12.1.12 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and we have it configured for our Wireless network.
We have a normal internal wireless network configured for AD authenticated users and we also use Eduroam.
I am using a Linelog module to record logins and for Eduroam entries,, I would like it to log the eduroma name instead of the
Switch the user it authenticated to


Mon Jul 18 08:38:00 2016 : Auth : [U1234567 at] (from client port 0 via TLS tunnel).

Instead of

Mon Jul 18 08:38:00 2016 : Auth : [U1234567 at] (from client qsa.n2k-mc01 port 0 via TLS tunnel).

The date and time is provided by variable %t, user name by %{username} and the client by %{client:shortname}.
The names are provided in the clients.conf e.g.

Client ipaddress
                Secret = secret-string
                Shortname =  switch-name
                Virtual_server = switches

                Secret = secret-string
                Shortname =
                Nastype = other
                Virtual_Server = eduroam
               Shortname = eduroam

Any ideas how to update logging config to record what I need?
