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.”

Luton Town have extended the loan of West Ham striker Elliot Lee until the end of the season.

Lee scored both goals in last night's 3-2 defeat to Wycombe, meaning he's now scored three times in total for the Hatters.

West Ham will be able to recall the 20-year-old at any stage, as long as they give 24 hours notice.

“Elliot’s been fantastic for us since joining and we’re thrilled we’ll have him for the rest of this season. He was superb against Wycombe and was dreadfully unlucky against Newport. He’s getting fitter all the time and I think that sharpness has been there for all to see in our past two matches.”

Luton Town have announced that they will change the name of their stadium for one match - to raise awareness for a cancer charity.

Kenilworth Road will be called the Prostate Cancer UK Stadium for the League Two clash with Wycombe Wanderers next Tuesday (24 March).

The Hatters are the first Football League club to ever take the step.

The number of men who die from prostate cancer every year, and also Kenilworth's Road capacity.

“We are extremely proud to be the first club to partner with a charity such as Prostate Cancer UK by renaming our stadium, albeit temporarily.

When we first hinted at the idea we were met with a mixed reaction – which is understandable given the history of the ground, and the amount of affection our supporters hold for Kenilworth Road.

We felt sure that once the full story emerged about our supporting Prostate Cancer UK, our supporters would understand and fully support the move.

This is a first for Luton Town and a first in football and we are delighted to be teaming up with a charity which has supported the game, in particular supporters and players past and present, so well."

McGeehan also had a spell with Luton last season as the Hatters stormed to the Conference title, and manager John Still admits that he would love to have him back at Kenilworth Road.

"We've always said that we would take Cam here permanently.

We believe he would want to come to us but he's got to work with Norwich, so we'll keep knocking at the door with this like we have done and see what comes out. But we have been and are talking to Norwich."
