Former Coventry City midfielder Gary Deegan has today left League One side Shrewsbury Town by mutual consent.

Deegan, known as “The Pitbull” for his aggressive style of play, joined The Shrews on a two-year contract from Southend United last summer, and went on to make 48 appearances in all competitions last season.

However after an “honest” discussion with Shrewsbury manager Paul Hurst, Deegan has left the League One side, after agreeing to cancel the final year of his contract.

The Shrews boss told the Shropshire Star: “I’ve had a conversation with Deegs and told him my thoughts.

“Our conversation was along the lines of being honest and open, and he respected that.

Since leaving The Sky Blues in 2012, Deegan has turned out for Hibernian, Northampton Town, Southend United and Shrewsbury Town.

Should he return to The Ricoh Arena for a second spell, he would be the second former player to sign up for The Sky Blues ahead of their League Two campaign following the arrival of former captain Michael Doyle from Portsmouth.

In his first spell, Deegan made 43 appearances for The Sky Blues, but the rumours of his potential return has divided City fans on social media.
