A League One club is moving on one former West Brom man after just over a month.

Shrewsbury Town have announced that that a former West Brom player along with two ex-Wolves men will be departing the club this summer.

Rayhaan Tulloch will be on the search for his fifth club in 15 months after his contract was not extended at the New Meadow. The 23-year-old departs the Shropshire outfit having made just one appearance.

Tulloch joined on a short-term deal on March 9 after his contract at The Hawthorns was terminated. He had spent the first part of the campaign on loan at League Two side Bradford City but returned to the Midlands, with his contract being ripped up.

He is being followed out of the door by Elliott Bennett and Harry Burgoyne who both started their careers at West Brom's Black Country rivals Wolves.

Bennett and Burgoyne had been at the club for a couple of years but now their stays will be coming to an end. Winger Bennett was at Wolves from 2004 to 2009 and made two appearances for the club in the Carabao Cup in the 2007/08 campaign.

Goalkeeper Burgoyne played a couple of games more and was able to play in seven league matches across the 2016/17 and 2017/18 season. The 27-year-old made a total of eight appearances before joining Shrewsbury permanently in January 2020, departing Molineux after 12-years of service.

After his departure was announced, he took to Twitter and in a goodbye post said:” Well thats a wrap as a Salopian.

“Big thanks to Mr Chairman for giving me the oppurtunity to provide for my family and to the managers ive played under from Sam to bringing me to the club to Gaff and the current manager who i wish the best to for next season….

“I also wanted to thank the players I have shared the Meadow pitch with in my time its been incredible and i have met some friends for life. And the fans thanks for welcoming me in and supporting me afterall I am a born and bred Shropshire Lad. I wish you the best. Thanks.”

A third former Wolves player has been afforded an opportunity to earn a deal in the summer. Jack Price joined Shrewsbury on March 13, joining his hometown club. The 31-year-old had returned from the MLS after a five-year spell with Colorado Rapids and made four appearances under manager Paul Hurst.
