Dutch winger Benjamin van den Broek has become the third out-of-contract Shrewsbury Town player to officially commit his future to the League Two club.

The 22-year-old was handed a short-term contract by former boss Paul Simpson in February and impressed enough in five starts and six substitute appearances to earn a new one-year-deal.

Club officials indicated van den Broek – who scored in the final home game against Morecambe – was on the brink of signing over the weekend, and the formalities have now been completed.
