With more than one option on the table the 23-year-old defender admitted he had turned to Luton’s electric young striker for advice.

He said: “I know Andre Gray really well from the summer in Bermuda and Andy Parry from the last squad as well.

“I did go to Andre for a bit of advice. I asked him what it’s like here and he had nothing but good things to say about the club and maybe it played a little part in me coming here.

“Once I came here myself I knew everything he was saying was true and wanted to come on board.

“All of the lads have made me feel really welcome.”
