Shrewsbury Town’s Jayson Leutwiler has ended speculation that he will be moving to Wolves by signing a new two year contract as confirmed by the club website.
With the 27-year-old goalkeeper being out of contract this summer, there had been a worry that he would leave the Greenhous Meadow. Those fears intensified when Wolves were reported to be interested in signing him with the aim of giving current number one Carl Ikeme more competition.
But any fear that he will be leaving Shrewsbury will be eased now that he’s signed a new two year deal with the club. While this is great news for him and the club, this could now lead to the release of the similarly out of contract keepers Mark Halstead and Callum Burton.
After signing the new deal, Leutwiler said: “I am really happy to sort it out and I am looking forward to the start of the season now,”
“First of all, the club, the environment and everything to do with Shrewsbury is very important to me and that was a massive factor in me re-signing here.
“I think I have played 90 games in two years here so I hope to make another 90 in the next two years or even more.
“It is just a pleasure to play all the time and I enjoy it every time.”
Leutwiler had started his career by coming through the famed Middlesbrough academy but failed to break through into the first team there and so moved to Shrewsbury on a free transfer in 2014.
