The 30-year-old was released by League Two Gillingham at the end of the campaign and had a number of clubs in the Football League interested in his services.

But a meeting with the Hatters duo of Buckle and Sweet quickly made it clear to Spiller that his future lay at Kenilworth Road.

He said: “I was very impressed with both Gary and Paul when I met them and was that impressed by their drive and ambition that I signed after the first meeting.

“I had agreed in principle within about an hour of just chatting with them, that was me and that was what we wanted to do.”
