Shrewsbury Town have signed defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.
The 26-year-old had been with Wolves since the age of nine and has had loan spells at several clubs in the EFL over the past few seasons.
Shrewsbury manager Sam Ricketts played alongside Ebanks-Landell for Wolves at centre-back and is now reunited with his former teammate.

Ebanks-Landell scored five goals in 50 appearances for Wolves and helped the team win promotion to the Championship in 2013-14.
The defender has not featured for Wolves since 2016, but has had loan spells in League One with MK Dons and Sheffield United and spent the second half of last season on loan at Rochdale, where he scored two goals in 16 appearances.
Shrewsbury finished 18th in the League One table this season, just two points above the relegation zone and Ricketts will be looking to bolster his defensive options ahead of the new campaign.
This is a great signing for Shrewsbury. Ebanks-Landell is an experienced defender and has won promotion from the third tier three times in his career.
Shrewsbury boss Ricketts played alongside Ebanks-Landell for Wolves and will know all about his quality. He could become an important player for Shrewsbury next season.
