Luton Town have confirmed the signing of defender Brendan Galloway on a free transfer from Everton.

The 23-year-old is the 4th new face with the Championship new boys, following the earlier acquisitions of Callum McManaman, Martin Cranie and Ryan Tunnicliffe.

Galloway had begun his career with MK Dons, making his professional debut in an FA Cup tie in 2011 before joining Everton in 2014 on an undisclosed fee.

Most of Galloway’s appearances came during the 2015-16 season, standing in as a regular after Leighton Baines got injured.

The defender would then spend the 2016-17 season on loan at West Brom, and the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Sunderland, but failed to make more than 10 appearances for either club.

Galloway had signed a contract extension with Everton in 2015, but has been let go one year early to move to Bedfordshire and reunite with Graeme Jones, who worked as a coach with the Toffees and Galloway during Roberto Martinez’s tenure.

The defender told the official Luton Town website, “I’m really happy to finally get it over the line and I can’t wait to get started.

“We’ve been in contact as I know the boss very well from working with him before. I really enjoyed working under him at Everton. The sessions were very exciting and very challenging for the players, and I think that he got the best out of a lot of us.

“He always wants to do the right thing and he wants to continue to win with this football club, like they have experienced in the past two seasons. I was really excited for the new project and to come here to be a part of the team.”
