Luton Town secure another transfer as Championship season looms

Published

Sky Bet Championship side Luton Town have completed the signing of former Everton defender Brendan Galloway, the club have now confirmed.

The Hatters have been very active in the transfer market thus far, bringing in Callum McManaman, Martin Cranie and Ryan Tunnicliffe as they prepare for life back in the second tier next season.

And they have now completed their fourth signing of the summer, with Galloway arriving at Kenilworth Road on a free transfer from Everton.

The left-back is no stranger to Luton boss Graeme Jones, having played under him when he was assistant to Roberto Martinez at Goodison Park.

The 23-year-old came through the ranks at MK Dons before making the move to the Toffees in 2014 – he went on to make only 21 senior appearances for the Merseyside club.

Galloway has endured a couple of loan spells in the Championship before, with West Bromwich Albion, and most recently Sunderland.

Luton needed a new full-back following the departure of James Justin to Premier League side Leicester City, after being nominated for the EFL Young Player of the Season award last term.

The Verdict

I think that Galloway is a very smart signing for Luton Town, and on a free transfer, you have to say that it makes perfect sense.

He’s a tall, powerful defender who is just as good at going forward as he going backward, and he is also a player that Jones will know how to get the best out of.

Not only have they brought in Justin’s replacement in for next to nothing, but they now have funds to strengthen their team in other areas of the pitch.

Luton are pulling off some really impressive signings, it must be said.
