Former Yeovil Town goalkeeper Chris Weale has completed a move to League One newcomers Shrewsbury Town. The 30 year old was released by Championship side Leicester City at the end of last season, and has been reunited with Graham Turner, who was his manager during a short loan spell with Hereford United.
Wealey missed the second half of the 2011-12 season with a knee injury that required surgery, but the good news is that it appears that he is fit again. He has told Shrewsbury's club site that his new club's commitment towards him was a big influence in his choice of move:
"It was more or less a mutual decision that I left Leicester because I need to play football. There was no point me sitting there on the bench in the Championship hoping a chance would come. I need to play and get out and show what I can do. Hopefully it's a platform to do that here. When you're wanted by a club, and it's very aware that they wanted me, it makes the decision very easy."
