Shrewsbury Town have signed defender Sagi Burton from Peterborough United.Shrewsbury Town have signed defender Sagi Burton on a free transfer from League Two rivals Peterborough United.
The 28-year-old has signed an 18-month contract with the Gay Meadow club, with the Shropshire outfit fending off interest from Chester City and Scottish Premier League side Falkirk for the defender's services.
With The Posh signing fellow defender Phil Bolland from Chester this week and manager Mark Wright admitting his reluctance to offer Burton a new contract in the summer, the former Crystal Palace, Colchester United, Port Vale and Crewe Alexandra man has opted for a fresh start with The Shrews.
"This is a fresh challenge for me in a new area and I'm really looking forward to it," Burton told the club's official website.
"This is the first season I've played in this league and it's been quite hard, but hopefully, I can bring my experience to the team and put them in the right direction and push up the table and into the play-off spots.
"I know a few of the players here from playing them in the past and hopefully we'll hit it off from the start."
