Luton Town have announced the loan signing of QPR defender Michael Harriman.

The right-back spent time on loan at Gillingham last season, and played against Liverpool in The Premier League for Rangers back in 2013.

The 21-year-old has signed for a month and will help cover for injured full-backs Paul Connolly and Curtley Williams at Kenilworth Road.

“I’m really happy to have joined Luton.

It’s a great club who did really well last season and you only need to take one look at their attendances this season to know just how big the club is.

If selected I’ll be looking forward to Saturday (against Southend United).”

Luton Town midfielder Matthew Robinson has signed a new contract with the club.

The fresh deal will keep the 20-year-old stay at Kenilworth Road until 2017.

Robinson has been a regular in the Hatters side since joining from Leicester City in 2012.

“Matthew has shown enormous maturity for a player so young, especially last season when we had a very youthful midfield in the latter half of the campaign.

He is one of many players that encapsulate what we are trying to do at this club. He’s young and hungry and always strives to better himself. Matthew is a great example to players of all ages because his attitude and work ethic has been second-to-none."

– John Still, Luton Town Manager

Still 'pleased with progress' following Hatters promotion

Luton Town manager John Still is pleased with the progress his team is making following their return to League Two after five years.

The Hatters currently sit 18th in the table, seven places and two points behind Cambridge United who they visit on Saturday.

It is the first time both clubs have faced each other since being promoted from the Conference last season.

Still admits they need to score more goals but reckons Luton are improving.

Luton Town have signed veteran striker Paul Benson on a permanent deal.

The 34-year-old spent last season on loan at Kenilworth Road, and was released by parent club Swindon Town earlier this summer.

He's agreed a two-year contract.

Benson's Luton record

  • Scored 18 goals in 38 Conference games.
  • Finished as Luton's second top scorer, behind Andre Gray (30) who has since moved to Brentford.

Speaking to the club's official website, Benson said that he was happy to secure his future.

"It’s good to finally get the contract sorted. I’m looking forward to an exciting season for me and the club.

I think we have the players here to really push on and challenge at the right end of the table.

If we take the momentum from last season forward I really do think we have a real chance of going up again."

Meanwhile, the Hatters have also signed two young players following successful trials.

Left-back Mark Onyemah has put pen to paper on a two-year deal from Thurrock, while 24-year-old striker Charlie Walker has joined from Peacehaven & Telscombe.

Walker scored 43 goals for the non-league side last season.

Luton defender Steve McNulty has also committed his future to the club, signing a new two-year contract.

Brentford have signed Luton Town striker Andre Gray for an undisclosed fee.

Speculation had been building that a deal was imminent, and the 23-year-old has now signed a three-year deal with The Championship newcomers.

Gray scored 30 goals for the Hatters last season as they secured the Conference title.

"We are naturally disappointed to lose Andre but it goes without saying that we wish him well at Brentford," Luton manager John Still told the club's official website.

"With only a year left on his contract, it was either a case of him extending with us or him moving on. It is a great move for him and I am confident that he will go on and enjoy huge success at Griffin Park."

Luton Town striker Andre Gray could be about to seal a move to The Championship, with Brentford closing in on his signature.

The 23-year-old fired the Hatters to promotion from The Conference last season, netting 30 goals and finishing as the league's top-scorer.

Gray was also a target for Blackpool, but newly-promoted Brentford appear to have jumped to the front of the queue.

Meanwhile, Crawley Town have rejected a second offer from Luton for midfielder Andy Drury.

The Hatters are keen to bring the 30-year-old back to Kenilworth Road, but Crawley still see him as part of their plans.

“Their second offer was not much better than the first so we turned it down," Crawley manager John Gregory told The Argus.

"They both fell well short of our valuation of Andy and to be honest even if it was a penny less than the release clause then we wouldn’t have accepted as I don’t want him to go.

“I’m planning to build my team around Andy this season so unless they offer the amount that is in his contract and take it out of our hands then he is going nowhere.”

League One side Crawley Town have blocked an approach from Luton Town for midfielder Andy Drury.

Drury previously spent time at Luton earlier in his career, before he was snapped up by Ipswich Town for a fee of around £150,000.

The Hatters were very interested in bringing the 30-year-old back to Kenilworth Road, but Crawley still see him as a key member of their squad.

"We have rejected Luton's approach because we have absolutely no wish to sell Andy," Crawley Town Chief Executive Michael Dunford said.

"He is an integral part of John Gregory's plans for next season and a very important member of our squad."

Luton have managed to get one deal over the line today however, with Welling United striker Ross Lafayette joining on a two-year deal.

Luton Town have signed Welling United striker Ross Lafayette on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old hit 17 goals in 41 games last season for the Kent club in the Conference.

Lafayette previously played for Hemel Hempstead and Wealdstone before joining Welling.

“Ross is a player we have had on our radar for a number of years, he’s always someone we’ve had in mind," manager John Still told the club's official website.

"Ross has a lot of ingredients which make him an ideal signing. He’s quick, he’s strong and he knows how to score goals.

“Ross knows that he’s got to work his absolute socks off to do well at Luton Town to be a success and I back him 100 per cent to do exactly that.”
