Danny Hylton will join Northampton Town after the striker’s contract with Luton Town expires.

The 33-year-old striker will move from Kenilworth Road to Sixfields on July 1st, and he has signed a two year contract with the Cobblers.

The news brings to an end Hylton’s six year stay at Luton, during which he helped the team fly from League 2 to the Championship play-offs after joining from Oxford United in 2016.

Jon Brady told the official Northampton Town website of his delight to get him signed for the club.

He said, “He is an excellent professional and his experience and know how will be a real asset to us.

“He has been there and done it, he played a lot of football in the Championship last season and started the play off semi final second leg.

“He will fit in with our style. He has an excellent scoring record and his all round play is good. He can help get us and keep us high up the pitch.

“Not only that, his knowledge will be a real asset to the other strikers we have at the club. I know he had other options but we are delighted he has agreed to come to Sixfields.”

Hylton joined Luton at the start of the 2016/17 season, and was one of Nathan Jones’ first signings at the club in his first full season as manager.

In all, he made 170 appearances for the club in six years, scoring 62 goals along the way. He scored 4 times in his final season with the club, all of which earned the Bedfordshire club crucial points.

Luton Town boss Jones admitted to the Hatters’ official website that he would miss working with Hylton.

He said, “Danny has been my best-ever signing as a manager and I am going to miss him every single day.

“He was the catalyst for all the other great signings that we have had, and has epitomised everything we have done here at Luton with his high energy, underdog spirit, the quality – just everything about us.

“He had opportunities to leave, but never did. Every day he came in and trained like a lunatic. He was a talisman, the player the fans related to, and it’s the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in allowing him to leave the football club. It’s like letting your kid go.

“There will be a gaping hole now Danny Hylton has left, but I thank him for coming to us and turning down bigger offers than ours. I thank him for everything he has done for us, and I thank him for just being Danny Hylton every single day.”
