Shrewsbury Town have confirmed on their club website that Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sean Goss and Norwich City midfielder Louis Thompson have joined the club.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sean Goss has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with League One side Shrewsbury Town, while Norwich City’s Louis Thompson has joined the club on a season-long loan deal.

We reported here on The72 yesterday that Goss was closing in on a move to the Shrews, with Mark Warburton deeming him surplus to requirements at the Championship club. He played only seven times during his time with QPR and is now looking forward to cracking on with Shrewsbury after having encouraging chats with some of the club’s current players.
