Luton Town have signed striker Aaron Jarvis from non-league side Basingstoke Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year-old frontman has agreed a one-year contract with an option of a second.

Jarvis came through the youth ranks at the Hampshire side, and scored 17 times last season.

He told the club's website: "It’s absolutely amazing – a dream come true for me to sign my first professional contract for Luton. I’m excited to get out there now and meet the boys.

"I was meant to have my work shift at Tesco tonight – but it was worth the cancel. I’ve not handed my notice in yet, but I will do soon!”

Meanwhile, MK Dons have signed Alex Gilbey from Colchester on a three-year-deal.

He's the 12th and final signing of the summer transfer window for the Dons.

With just under two hours to go until the transfer window shuts, some of our clubs have been making last minute deals:

Northampton signed goalkeeper Matt Ingram on loan from QPR.

Colchester have been busy, signing three loan players - midfielder Brandon Comley from QPR, striker Brandon Hanlan from Charlton, and defender Ryan Innis from Crystal Palace plus another forward Sanmi Odulesi on a short-term deal.

Stevenage have signed winger Charlie Wakefield on loan from Chelsea while striker Kyle Wooton moves on loan from Scunthorpe.

So far the biggest story of the day is the departure of Cobblers' boss Justin Edinburgh.

Grant Hanley: 'I'm an old fashioned centre-half'

Norwich City's latest signing Grant Hanley has described himself as an "old fashioned centre-half".

The Scottish international has signed for an undisclosed fee from Newcastle United on a four-year deal.

He told the club's website "It’s a club with high aspirations and a fresh start for me. As a defender, I’m a bit of an old-fashioned no-nonsense centre-half and you pride yourself on clean sheets. We’ve got work to do on the training ground to improve that."

The Canaries defence has already shipped 15 goals so far this season.

Daniel Farke said: "It was clear to me that while there were some things about the team which are working well, our defensive line needs strengthening. Grant is a quality defender and is not just another option in the defence."

Cambridge United midfielder Luke Berry has joined League Two rivals Luton town on a three-year contract, for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old could be eligible to make his debut tomorrow when the Hatters take on Mansfield at the One Call Stadium.

Berry was The U's leading scorer last season with 22 goals.

But the 25-year-old, who has netted 59 times overall in his two spells at the club, handed in his transfer request earlier this week.

Speaking to the club's website, Manager Nathan Jones said: "Luke's a player who has been prolific goalscoring wise at this level and he fits the mould of what we want here.

"He's young, he's ambitious, he's technically good, he gets goals – and he's a little bit like Cameron McGeehan in terms of the way he played, so we are delighted to have him."

Norwich City teenager Ben Godfrey has joined Shrewsbury Town on loan.

The 19-year-old has signed for the League One side until January and joins fellow City players Ebou Adams and Carlton Morris.

Godfrey was signed by the Canaries from York City in January 2016 and made his Canaries debut last season in the EFL Cup against Coventry City.

In January, he came on as a substitute in Norwich’s win over Birmingham City to make his league debut.

Godfrey signed a new four-year deal with the Canaries, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2021.

Matt Taylor: Northampton midfielder signs for Swindon

Northampton Town midfielder Matt Taylor has joined League Two side Swindon Town on a free transfer.

The 35-year-old joined the Cobblers in 2016 but has fallen out of favour under manager Justin Edinburgh.

Taylor has agreed a one-year deal at The County Ground.

We fully understand Matt's wish to play regular first team football and that’s not something we could guarantee.

At this stage of his career, it is perfectly understandable that Matt wants to be playing as often as possible and with the additions we have made to the squad this summer it has probably changed things somewhat.

We said we wouldn't stand in his way if an opportunity came up and that is what has happened, so Matt goes with our thanks and best wishes.

– Justin Edinburgh, Northampton Town manager
