You already can move it to the left simply by turning left, as I pointed out, so unless you haven't found the key above TAB that allows you to check around your avatar, there isn't a problem. Getting shot at from the left? You turn to face the left. An enemy trying to circle to your left to swing around your shield? You turn to your left and hey presto, your shield is again covering you. Could you spell out to me exactly what you envisage doing with your shield that isn't covered in the game? I can't imagine why you would want to move your shield to the side independently of the direction you are facing.
