Luton Town defender Kal Naismith has left the club to join the Hatters’ fellow Championship side Bristol City.

The 30-year-old has signed a 3 year deal to move to Ashton Gate, despite Luton offering the out-of-contract player an extension.

Naismith will move from Bedfordshire to Bristol upon expiry of contract, after a year and a half with the Hatters.

Luton signed Naismith from Wigan Athletic in January 2021, and he would score 4 in 63 appearances at the club, as well as providing several assists.

Naismith was a regular in the Luton team that finished in the play-offs in the season just finished, scoring a last minute winner against Bournemouth and the only goal in a win against Nottingham Forest, as well as grabbing an assist in the first leg of the play-off against Huddersfield Town.

The defender told the official Bristol City website of his delight to get the move done quickly. He said,, “It feels great to get it done and it feels brilliant to be here. It’s a huge club and I’m just massively excited to be a part of it.

“We wanted to get it done quickly so I can enjoy time off with my family, and ultimately look forward and know where I’m going to be, come the start of the season.

“There is everything here for this club to be successful on the pitch and ultimately it’s up to the players and everyone to give everything every day and always try to get better day-in-day-out. I believe if we do that it will stand us in good stead.”
