Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Hurst shares current stance on signing free agent midfielder

Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Hurst has said they will make a decision regarding to sign free agent Jack Price ‘down the line’.

Shrewsbury Town are currently letting the midfielder train with them to boost his fitness levels ahead of a potential future move.

Price, 31, is available after leaving MLS outfit Colorado Rapids last year.

Hurst has provided this update on his situation, as per the official club website: “At the end of last week and the start of this, he has actually been on the grass and done some training with us. 

“It’s too early to say if anything will happen with that. Ultimately, he has still got to prove a little bit more in terms of fitness.”

On whether they will sign him: “I think that might be a conversation further down the line. Again if we get to that point, Micky (director of football Micky Moore) and the chairman will look to see what we can do.”

It is too early to say whether Shrewsbury will offer a deal to Price.

If he can get back fit, he could be a useful addition for the League One side and would give them more competition and depth in midfield. He would also inject some useful experience into their ranks.

He rose up through the academy at Wolves and broke into their first-team in 2013. The Shrewsbury-born man helped the Midlands club gain promotion to the Championship in 2014.

Price went on to make 115 appearances in all competitions during his time at Molineux and scored two goals, as well as having loan spells away at Yeovil Town and Leyton Orient.

He then moved over to America in 2018 to join Colorado and has spent the past six years at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

Price played 130 matches for the Denver-based club and chipped in with a couple of goals before cutting ties with them last year.

He is now back home and Shrewsbury have a decision to make regarding whether to bring him in permanently. There is no rush at the moment though.

Hurst’s side are sat in 17th place in the third tier table and are seven points above the drop zone. They face Exeter City at home this evening.
