Luton Town midfielder Cameron McGeehan could be forced sit out this weekend's derby game with Cambridge United because he's been banned by the country that have been trying to call him up.

The 20-year-old was named in Northern Ireland's under-21s squad for their upcoming games against Scotland and Iceland, but he rejected the call because he wants more time to consider his international future.

The Irish FA have now taken the unusual step of suspending McGeehan from playing any football for the remainder of the current international window.

The Hatters say they'll appeal the decision.

I want to enjoy my football again and I know that this club is going places. John Still has put together a fantastic squad with great quality. This team can definitely challenge at the top this season.”

Meanwhile, striker Mark Cullen has left the club.

The 23-year-old has joined League One side Blackpool for £180,000.

"Mark was part of our squad that got us promoted back to the Football League – that is something we’ll never forget – and last season he was our leading goalscorer.

However, Mark made it obvious that he wanted to move back up north to be closer to his home."

“The size of the club and the support was a major factor in signing but I want to achieve something here.

I could tell from the first meeting with the manager that this was a club that wanted to go places and I didn’t want to sign for a mediocre club happy just to sit in the middle of the league.

I’ve come here to do well and help this club win promotion.”
