Shrewsbury Town have made a bid for Northampton Town defender Aaron Pierre.

The 26-year-old will become a man in-demand this summer, as per a report by HITC Sport.

Pierre, who is a Grenada international with five caps to his name, has impressed for Northampton this season in League Two. He played 45 games in all competitions, chipping in with eight goals from centre-back.

Shrewsbury had a difficult season in the third tier after getting to the Play-Off final in the previous campaign. The Shrews will be hoping next season goes better for them and signing players like Pierre will certainly help them do this.
