"I'm excited about working with the manager (Micky Mellon), it will be good for me personally," he said.
"I know that he likes the team to get the ball down and play.
"There was interest from other clubs but once I knew that Shrewsbury were interested it was a straight-forward decision.
"I've always been in and around the North West area before I moved to Luton.
"Moving away from home is full of challenges but I thought I dealt with it quite well."
And the former Accrington Stanley-man is looking forward to linking up with Town boss Micky.
"I can play up front, wide left or in behind the striker - I'm an attack-minded player," he said.
"I like to try and get the ball down and get at players.
"Im 27 now and I'm going to be 28 in a few months, and they say that's when you peak in your career."
Whalley helped steer Luton back to the Football League in the 2013/14 season and describes himself as a more attacking player.
"I'm looking forward to the challenge at Shrewsbury," said Whalley.
"I'm really excited about coming here and with pre-season starting I'll be delighted to get to know the lads.
"It wasn't a hard decision by any means. I know a couple of the lads here and it will help me settle.
"I'm now really looking forward to playing in League One, and looking at Shrewsbury last year, a lot of people said that they were the best footballing side in the league."
And Whalley, who is based in the North West, is now excited to get pre-season underway.
The 27-year-old, who has spent the last two seasons at Luton Town, links up with Micky Mellon's side ahead of the 2015/16 Sky Bet League 1 campaign.
Shrewsbury Town are delighted to the announce the signing of attacking midfielder Shaun Whalley on a two-year deal.
