Vernon heads to Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury have signed striker Scott Vernon on a two-year deal with the option for another year.

The 30-year-old has made over 130 appearances with Aberdeen in the last four seasons.

"Scott is a very good player and a clever striker who I believe will fit in perfectly to what we are doing," Shrews boss Micky Mellon told the club's official website.

"He's got great experience and I am absolutely delighted to have Scott on board.

"It's a deal we know that we have done for a few weeks now but with Scott being on holiday we had to wait until now.

"He makes good runs and has good movement. He's a striker but can play in a number of variations. He can play in the number 10 role, he can play in a front two or up front on his own."
