Shrewsbury Town Boss Paul Hurst is hopeful that Midfielder Bryn Morris will be with the club next season.
Morris joined Town from Middlesbrough in January and made 13 appearances during the second half of the season.
“We’ve had some contact with Bryn and he’s away at the minute”, said Paul.
“I think things have moved closer there. I can’t say that he’s definitely signing, but I’m certainly getting a positive vibe from his speaking to his agent, so fingers crossed that is one that we might get a bit of news on soon.
“Bryn is at an age where there is still a lot of potential in him. Ultimately, we are covered as a club because he is under-24 and he has been offered a deal, so worst case we would at least get some compensation.”
With Gary Deegan having left the club last week, Abu Ogogo is currently the only senior central midfielder on the books. Paul confirmed that Morris’ future could change recruitment plans in that area of the pitch.
“We are still realistically looking in every position”, said Hurst.
“Nothing has really changed for me on that front. If it was a negative on Bryn then with the rest of the midfielders we are looking at we would probably have to get two rather than one. We will keep our options open.”
