Luton Town have signed Kal Naismith on a free transfer after his departure from Wigan Athletic.

The 28-year-old is Luton’s first signing of the January transfer window, with the Scot making the move less than a month after he left League One Wigan by mutual consent.

Naismith had spent 2 1/2 years at Wigan after joining them from Portsmouth in 2018. He made 84 appearances in all competitions for the Latics, scoring 7 times.

Before joining Portsmouth, Naismith also played for Accrington Stanley, having been a graduate of the academy at Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers.

Naismith told the official Luton Town website of his delight at getting the move done.

He said, “It feels great to get it done. I’m excited to meet the lads and I’m delighted I’m here, looking forward to getting started. 

“I loved my time at Wigan and I’m very grateful for the opportunity that the club gave me to go and play Championship football. There were some great lads and staff members, it was excellent for me and my career, but I’m looking forward to the next step now. 

“It has been a tough few months and I’m just looking forward to getting back into that environment with the lads and back in the Championship, which is a great league.”
