Luton Town have confirmed the signing Wigan Athletic winger Callum McManaman on a free transfer.
The 28-year-old will officially become a Luton player next month, when his contract at Wigan expires and will become the first signing of the Graeme Jones era.
McManaman scored one goal in 22 Championship appearances for Wigan last season, but he was not offered a new deal at the club.
The winger has played for various clubs throughout his career, including West Brom, Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland.
So, is McManaman a good signing for Luton? We discuss…

“This is a brilliant signing.
“He’s proven in the Championship and will fit in perfectly to the Luton side next season as they look to establish themselves in the second tier of English football.
“I’m shocked they’ve been able to pull this off and he’ll be a key player for them to rely on.”
“I’m not so sure about this.
“He didn’t make an impact at Wigan last season and has struggled for a few years now.
“On a free transfer you can understand why Luton have taken a chance but I’m not sure he will be a hit at Kenilworth Road.”
“This could be a great signing for Luton and a great way to begin the Graeme Jones era.
“McManaman is a player with plenty of experience and he should be able to make an impact straight away.
“He could turn out to be an excellent signing, especially on a free transfer.”
