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.

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."

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.

Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Tshibola has joined League One side MK Dons on a season-long loan.

The powerful 22-year-old moved to Villa Park from Reading last summer, but was loaned out to Nottingham Forest in January.

Tshibola is the Dons' eighth signing of the summer so far.

Aaron will bring great experience, energy and power to the team. He’s a Championship-calibre player so it’s a top signing for us.

I think it shows how far we’ve come and where we’re trying to get to, that we can attract someone of Aaron’s quality.

Meanwhile, Luton Town have signed former Stoke City goalkeeper Harry Isted on a one-year deal.

Andrew Shinnie: Luton Town loan Scottish midfielder

Luton Town have signed Scottish midfielder Andrew Shinnie on a season-long loan from Championship club Birmingham City.

The 27-year-old, who has one cap for Scotland, started his career at Rangers and has also played for the likes of Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Rotherham United.

Shinnie helped Hibernian gain promotion to the Scottish Premier League while on loan there last season.

It’s a wonderful signing for us. I have to confess, Andrew was on my list when I was at Brighton to take him there, so to get him for Luton is a real coup for the football club.

He has a proven track record. He was an excellent player in the Championship through Birmingham’s really good spell under Gary Rowett and he’s a player that myself and Joaquin Gomez flagged up early in our Brighton time.

So to actually bring him to the football club is wonderful. We lost a wonderful player in Cameron McGeehan and what he does is difficult to replace. But we have brought in a different Championship quality player and we are delighted.

James Collins: Prolific League Two striker joins Luton Town

Luton Town have completed the signing of prolific Crawley Town striker James Collins for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old, who was part of the Northampton Town team that was promoted to League One in 2016, has agreed a three-year deal at Kenilworth Road.

He will help fill the void left by Jack Marriott who was sold to Peterborough United on Wednesday.

Collins scored an impressive 20 league goals for a struggling Crawley side last season, and will compete with Danny Hylton for a starting berth in Nathan Jones' first-choice eleven.

James is a proven striker, especially at this level. To score the amount of goals that he did – without being disrespectful to anyone – in a team that was fighting relegation, was first class.

It's a wonderful signing and we've had to work really hard to get him. All credit to the board and to James himself. He showed a desire to want to come to the club because we had competition from other clubs to get him.

We want winners in the dressing room and good characters who want to buy into the ethos we have here. When I met James, I knew that he had that ethos. I know what he wants to do. It's a real coup for us.

– Nathan Jones, Luton Town manager

Meanwhile, young goalkeeper Craig King has left the club to pursue a career away from professional football.

The 20-year-old said in a statement that he had been suffering from "severe depression" for the last couple of years and wants to concentrate on getting better.
