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.”

Luton Town have agreed to permanently sign Norwich City midfielder Cameron McGeehan on a two-year contract for an undisclosed six-figure fee.

The 20-year-old is no stranger to Kenilworth Road, making 33 appearances for Luton across two loan spells - the most recent last season when he scored three goals in 15 league games.

McGeehan was also part of the Cambridge United team that drew with Manchester United in the FA Cup in January.

Luton Town boss Still hails Cuthbert signing

Luton Town have signed Scottish defender Scott Cuthbert on a two-year deal.

The centre-half recently left Leyton Orient, who he helped reach the League One play-off final a year ago.

27-year-old Cuthbert started his career at Celtic, before joining Swindon Town.

“When you set your targets you don’t always get them but Scott was the one we wanted. We stuck at it and we’ve got him.

He’s impressed us as we didn’t have to push him towards us, he wanted to come here. Scott’s dropped a level but he thinks he can get back up to League 1 and beyond in his time with us.

He’s a warrior, he’s got leadership qualities; he’s a good talker and a good organiser. When you sign an experienced player like this you want them to put it to good use and I think Scott will.

He was the top man at Orient and I’m delighted with this capture. We felt it was important to bring in a player that will come in and make all our centre-backs look at each other and ask ‘who is going to play?’ And that’s what we want.”

Luton Town swoop for former Ipswich Town striker Marriott

Luton Town have completed the signing of former Ipswich Town striker Jack Marriott.

The 20-year-old enjoyed loan spells at Woking and Colchester United last season, but wasn't offered a new deal at Portman Road.

“Jack’s quick, he’s aggressive, he’s had a bit of Football League experience and he’s scored goals in the Conference.

He’s somebody we actually looked at bringing in on loan during the Conference title season but we decided against it as we had the firepower at the time.

So naturally he’s a player we’ve been looking at for a while – I actually first saw him playing for Ipswich reserves.

And what I liked about him – putting goals to one side – was his attitude on the pitch. So we kept a close eye on him and when we knew something could be possible we’ve moved quickly.”

Luton Town have signed Aston Villa defender Lewis Kinsella on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old left-back has featured in recent Villa squads, and played a part in the FA Cup win over West Brom.

“We are very lucky to have a player of Lewis’ calibre – it speaks volumes that he has been on Villa’s bench for their last two Premier League games.

With Scott unavailable and needing an operation we are light of players in that area, and with that in mind, we’re delighted to be able to do a deal to bring Lewis to Luton Town."

– John Still, Luton Town Manager

Meanwhile, Luton duo Ross Lafayette and Ian Rees have joined Welling United and Hitchin Town respectively on loan.

Luton Town midfielder Luke Rooney has left the club, after both parties agreed to cancel his contract.

The 24-year-old featured prominently at the start of this season, but has seen his chances limited recently after struggling to recover from a hernia operation.

"Luke hasn’t featured so much recently after coming back to fitness following a hernia operation, so with that in mind we came to a decision to allow him to pursue a club elsewhere.

Luke did a good job for us, especially early in the season, which helped us pick up form on our return to the Football League – and for that we are grateful. I wish him all the best of luck.”
