Luton Town have signed forward Harry Cornick from Premier League side AFC Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has agreed an initial two-year contract and becomes the Hatters' ninth signing of the summer so far.

Cornick has previously enjoyed loan spells at Yeovil Town, Leyton Orient and Gillingham.

I've been an admirer of Harry’s for many years now. We tried to get him last year but it wasn’t possible, so when we knew he was available this time, we went straight into him.

Fair play to the board, they’ve backed me once again on another signing which will provide extra competition in the attacking area.

He had a number of offers, but chose to come here so we are delighted and are looking forward to working with him.

Peterborough United have seen off interest from Championship sides to sign young Irish goalkeeper Conor O’Malley from St Patrick's Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old reportedly attracted attention from the likes of Leeds United, but decided to join Posh instead.

O’Malley has agreed a two-year contract at the ABAX Stadium and will compete with Jonathan Bond for the number one shirt.

I am delighted to have him on board.

Without me sounding like a broken record and saying loads of clubs were after him, it is the truth.

There were Championship clubs in for him and I am really pleased he has decided to join us and look forward to working with him.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager

Stevenage have signed former Norwich City academy defender Kevin Lokko after triggering his release clause at National League side Maidstone United.

The 21 year old centre-back, who is an England C international, played 46 games for Maidstone last season.

Lokko also had a spell at Colchester earlier in his career but is yet to make an appearance in the Football League.

Many will be surprised by the timing of this but Kevin’s attracted a lot of interest in recent months and I can more than understand why a league club would take a punt on him.

We of course wish him all the best and thank him for his efforts during last season.

– Jay Saunders, Maidstone United manager

Meanwhile, Southend United have signed 19-year-old French forward Amadou Ba following a successful trial.

Ba has agreed a two-year deal at Roots Hall.

Fellow Shrimpers striker Theo Robinson has also committed his future to the club by agreeing a one-year contract extension.
