Luton Town have confirmed the signing of defender Reece Burke, who will join on a free transfer from Hull City.

The defender has signed a contract of undisclosed length with the Championship club, and is the club’s second new signing after the previous capture of Fred Onyedinma from Wycombe.

Burke, 24, scored 5 goals in 37 appearances last season as Hull City secured promotion to the second tier as League One champions.

The defender has previously played in the Championship for Wigan, Bolton and the Tigers. He began his career with West Ham United before joining Hull on a permanent basis in 2018.

Nathan Jones told the official Luton Town club website of his delight at beating a number of other clubs to sign the player.

He said, “We’re delighted to get this deal for Reece done because we’ve liked him for a while.

“He’s a good age, has good pedigree and is different to what we have at the club. He turned down other Championship clubs to come here, so we are convinced of his commitment to become a top player, which we feel he will achieve.

“He will give us different options which will help us to evolve, so we can’t wait to get working with him when we return for pre-season later this month.”
