Josh Vela joined Shrewsbury Town in the 2020 January transfer window from Scottish Premier League side Hibernian – signing a two-and-a-half-year deal at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.
The box-to-box midfielder began his career with Bolton where he joined the club aged nine. The 26-year-old enjoyed a prominent rise through the ranks and made his debut for the Wanderers in the Premier League against Swansea in 2012.
After 182 appearances for Bolton, Vela made the move north of the border but spent just six months with Hibs before putting pen to paper on a deal in Shropshire.
