Luton Town have signed Luke Freeman after he was released by Sheffield United

Luton Town have signed Luke Freeman after he was released by Sheffield United. The Hatters announced: “We are delighted to announce the signing of experienced midfielder Luke Freeman in time to join the Hatters squad’s delayed flight to Slovenia tomorrow.

“The 30-year-old free agent has been training with the Town since they returned for pre-season ten days ago, and has now agreed a permanent contract following his release by Sheffield United at the end of last season.

“Welcome to Kenilworth Road, Luke!”

Luton Town manager Jones said: “Luke is someone that is established at the level. I have coached and played with him at Yeovil. Then he did well at Stevenage, really well at Bristol City and then QPR. And he’s someone we’re delighted to get.

“He’s a fantastic character and a really good technical player; a left-footed, energetic midfielder who is attack minded.

“I’ve tried to sign Luke on two occasions before, wasn’t able to do it even though he had a real desire to do it on both occasions, I just couldn’t quite get there. To have finally got him is a big thing.

“He has come in to train with us, he has fitted in, he’s proved his fitness. And had a real desire of wanting to play for Luton, so we’re excited by it.

Freeman after completing his medical at The Brache, said: “The gaffer has asked me to come down here and I jumped at the opportunity to. I’ve really enjoyed my time so far.

“Hopefully I can add to the quality that is already here. The gaffer and the staff have done an unbelievable job over the last few years. So hopefully I can help the team move in the right direction. And maybe go one further this year.”
