Shrewsbury Town's out-of-contract top scorer Dave Hibbert is keeping his options open about next season.

"With the manager [Paul Simpson] losing his job, it's a bit of a waiting game. No-one's been offered anything yet," said Hibbert.

"Of course I'd like to stay. But I've got a child on the way, and things need to be right."

Hibbert, who scored 15 goals last season, was named Shrewsbury's player of the year on Sunday.

"I get on well with the fans here, and I really appreciate them," he told the club website after receiving his award, "and I feel I've been a lot more consistent this season.

"But the contracts haven't been sorted, and it's not easy."

Hibbert has been linked with a move to a number of clubs including Peterborough United who were relegated from the Championship last term.
