"In the lower leagues, you're on year-to-year deals and I didn't particularly think I would get a contract so being offered one was pleasing," he said.

"I didn't have the best season, but I'm a young player, I think the gaffer still sees potential in me, and I'm not breaking the bank here to stay."

The Hereford-born Wales youth international, who made 16 starts for Shrewsbury last season, is the first of the club's six out-of-contract players to sign a new deal.

Having been sent to one of the country's top hip specialists in Cambridge, he will undergo the first of two operations that will involve a spur of bone being shaved off in both of his hips.
