Luton Town have signed midfielder Eunan O’Kane on loan from Championship leaders Leeds United until January.

The 28-year-old, who has seven caps for the Republic of Ireland, was a regular in the Leeds team last season but has found his opportunities limited since the arrival of new manager Marcelo Bielsa.

“It’s a fantastic signing for the football club. Eunan’s a wonderful player, a very good Championship level player," manager Nathan Jones said.

“He’s Championship quality and a Republic of Ireland international - it’s the calibre of player that we want to attract here. We’re excited and looking forward to working with him.”

Meanwhile, the Hatters have allowed striker Jake Jervis to join League One rivals AFC Wimbledon on loan for the rest of the season and midfielder Luke Gambin to move on loan to Crawley Town.

Elsewhere, Southend United defender Anton Ferdinand has left the club by mutual consent and the Shrimpers have signed Bristol City defender Taylor Moore on a season-long loan as a replacement.

Peterborough United have completed their busy summer of business with the season-long loan signing of Wigan Athletic attacking midfielder Jamie Walker.
