Luton Town manager Nathan Jones has signed a new four year contract with the side currently top of League Two.

The 44-year-old Welshman had previously signed a contract extension up until 2020 in March, but has now put pen to paper on a further extension to his deal.

Jones’ extension comes ahead of the 2 year anniversary of his appointment, which is on Saturday (06/01) and is marked by Luton’s FA Cup Third Round clash with Premier League side Newcastle.

Jones told the club’s official site, “I’m proud to extend my deal here and sign a new contract. I’ve never made any secret of the fact I love my job here. We are building something and I’m delighted to rubberstamp the fact that I want to be here.

“It’s a wonderful club and from day one since I came in, everyone has welcomed me and supported me. The fans have got right behind me. We’re in a real good place now and I think it just shows that the club want to move forward, and also that I see myself being here.

“My ambitions match the club’s, and the club’s ambitions match mine, so we are a good fit.”

Jones was appointed as manager after leaving a backroom role with Brighton, whom he had also represented as a player. So far, he has a 52% win ratio from 114 matches in charge in all competitions.

The club’s chief executive Gary Sweet added, “We are delighted to be able to extend Nathan’s contract for the second time to remain as Luton Town manager for the foreseeable future.

“From the moment he walked into Kenilworth Road almost two years ago we have all seen the transformation of our playing style and improvement in our squad, and we are all enjoying being a Hatter right now.”
