The 17-year-old impressed in the FA Trophy for Luton last term at both left-back and centre-half and the uncertainty surrounding Town’s youth set-up in the summer saw him try his luck elsewhere.

Carney went on a two-week work experience placement to Norwich City, but they weren’t prepared to meet Town’s valuation of the youngster.

Managing director Gary Sweet said: “He is fully back. It was important that any player that wants to explore his future elsewhere is given the opportunity. We are happy with what we did and the decision.”
