Luton Town have confirmed the deadline day double signing of striker Sam Nombe and midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall.
Nombe has been signed from League One side MK Dons on a season long loan with an option for a permanent move, while Dewsbury-Hall has moved to the club on a season long loan from Leicester City.
The two make it 7 new signings for the season for Nathan Jones’ side as they seek to build on surviving on the final day of last season.
21-year-old Nombe was the first of the two signings to be confirmed. He moves from MK Dons, having already featured in 7 matches the Dons have had in the season so far, scoring once in an EFL Trophy win over Northampton Town.
Nombe confirmed Luton nearly signed the striker in January, but he was glad to now make the move up the M1 from Buckinghamshire to Bedfordshire.
He said, “There was some interest in January, but it didn’t go through and I think the gaffer was keen to get it through in this window, as I was too. I’m so glad it’s all done and I can push forward and test myself as a player at a higher level.
“I know the history behind this club and all the players who have come through at Luton Town, so for me it’s definitely a place where you come to develop and progress yourself as a player.
“That’s what I’m here to do while also helping the team progress and get as many points as we can to keep pushing forward in the league.”
Meanwhile, 22 year-old Dewsbury-Hall confirmed his arrival from Premier League side Leicester later in the day. The midfielder made his senior debut for Leicester earlier this year and made 10 appearances in a loan spell at Blackpool in what could be completed of the 2019-20 season before the coronavirus crisis cut it short.
There was also one further outgoing at Kenilworth Road on deadline day, as Andrew Shinnie confirmed a move to Charlton Athletic.
The 31-year-old midfielder has made a season long loan move to the League One side from South London, as he seeks more regular minutes on the pitch.
Shinnie joined Luton in 2018 and was a regular in the side that won promotion from League One to the Championship, but played less frequently for the Hatters when they made it to the second tier last season.
