Shrewsbury have confirmed they have sealed the signing of defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell from Wolves on a three year contract.
The West Midlands club confirmed on their official Twitter account that the 26-year-old has swapped Molineux for the New Meadow ground after spending the second half of last season on loan with Rochdale.

The centre back played 50 times for Wolves during his time at the club, scoring five goals, although his last outing came back in April 2016, having fallen down the pecking order.
Ebanks-Landell’s time at Wolves has been over for a long while and it is perhaps a surprise it has taken this long to get him off the books. It is not like he was a youngster who might be able to up his game and hit new heights with his potential. He should be playing at the very peak of his abilities right now and it was quite clear that the Premier League was a cut above where he should be playing. To have been kept out in the cold for two years must have been difficult for the defender but he finally has a new place to call home. It is a relatively short journey from Molineux to Shrewsbury and so it is not like he is uprooting and moving to the other side of the country. He can look forward to starting a new and permanent chapter of his career and playing regular football for his parent club.
