Liam Lawrence: Penned a two-year deal

The 32-year-old midfielder has signed a two-year deal with the club after leaving Barnsley at the end of last season and brings a wealth of experience to a Shrewsbury side looking for an instant return to Sky Bet League One.

Lawrence came through the youth ranks at Mansfield before going on to play for Sunderland, Stoke, Portsmouth and Cardiff before a two-year stint in Greece with PAOK, which ended in January when he joined Barnsley.

He made 14 appearances for Barnsley as they were relegated to League One and has won 15 caps for the Republic of Ireland.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
