Luton Town striker Danny Hylton has signed a new contract with the club.

The 27-year-old is the Hatters' top scorer this season with 14 goals in 26 games.

The forward moved to Kenilworth Road in the summer after rejecting a new deal with League One side Oxford United.

Hylton's new contract will run until June 2019.

This is a big signing for us and it’s like a new one really because it secures him for us long-term.

He believes in what we do here and we very much believe in what Danny gives us.

For me, he’s the best in the league. I wouldn’t swap him for any other player.

For what he brings me, what he does for me and how I can rely on that kid, he’s outstanding. I’m delighted we’ve managed to ensure we have him here for even longer.

Luton Town have signed midfielder Lawson D'Ath for an undisclosed fee from League One side Northampton Town.

The 24-year-old has agreed an 18-month contract with the Hatters, following two-and-a-half seasons at Sixfields.

The former Reading player helped the Cobblers win promotion last season, scoring four times for the club.

Manager Nathan Jones told the official Hatters website, "He is a player I know very well; a young player but with real good League experience, including a promotion last year with Northampton. He’ll add real quality and energy to our squad, and we’ve managed to sign him on what could turn out to be a two-and-a-half year contract.”

Jones backs McGeehan to come back 'better than ever'

Luton Town manager Nathan Jones has backed midfielder Cameron McGeehan to come back "better than ever" after he suffered a broken leg in the recent game at Portsmouth.

The 21-year-old suffered the injury at Fratton Park in Monday's 1-0 defeat and was booked by the referee for punching the floor in pain.

McGeehan will undergo surgery once the swelling has gone down and is likely to be out of action for a number of months.

Cameron’s picked up a relatively bad injury that’s going to keep him out for a number of months.

We don’t know how long until the surgeon completes the operation, but as soon as it has been done we’ll have a clearer picture of timescale and rehabilitation.

What we do know from Cam though is that he’s strong, he’s driven, he’s a young, super-fit athlete and that gives him every chance to come back better than ever.

Highly-rated Luton Town striker Isaac Vassell has signed a new contract with the club.

The 22-year-old joined the Hatters in the summer after impressing for non-league side Truro City and has gone on to make 23 appearances.

Vassell's new deal will run until the summer of 2018.

We are delighted with the progress Isaac has made. We gave him an opportunity and he’s grabbed it with both hands.

He’s different to what we’ve got and he’s hungry – that’s why we’ve decided to take up the option and give him a new contract.

Over the five months since he’s been here he’s done really well to impress us and grasp his chance.

He’s had a few peaks and troughs over that time, but overall he’s proved to be a real asset and we are excited by him with what he brings to us.

Former Luton Town defender Paul Futcher has died at the age of 60.

He started his career with Chester before moving to the Hatters at the age of 17 along with twin brother Ron in 1974.

The ex-England Under-21 international became the most expensive defender in English football when he moved to Manchester City in 1978 for £350,000.

Hatters Chief Executive Gary Sweet remembers watching Futcher in his second season as a Luton Town supporter.

Paul was simply a class above. He joined in my second full season as a fan and became an instant hero of mine. He was up there with the very best I’ve ever seen play for the Club and has remained there. Paul was a silky, rock-steady defender who had such amazing technical ability and, more than anything, a cool-head that left thousands in awe. He will live long in the memory of anyone who saw him play.
