Luton Town have signed Hibernian goalkeeper Matt Macey, who returns to a club he previously represented on loan.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper is the second former Hatters player to return to Kenilworth Road this summer, after the arrival of Cauley Woodrow was confirmed earlier this week.

Macey moves from Scotland to Luton for an undisclosed fee, with the player signing an undisclosed contract length at Kenilworth Road.

The goalkeeper’s previous spell at Luton came in the 2016/17 season, when Macey joined Luton on loan from Arsenal, making 13 appearances in all competitions.

Macey joined Arsenal from Bristol Rovers as a teenager, but only made 2 senior appearances for the London-based side despite being used as a back-up, including making the bench as an unused substitute in the 2020 FA Cup Final.

As well as his 2017 spell with Luton, Macey spent time out on loan with Accrington Stanley and Plymouth Argyle before joining Hibs on a permanent basis in January 2021.

Following a handful of appearances in his first half-season in Edinburgh, along with an appearance in the Scottish Cup final, Macey became first choice last season, making 44 appearances in all competitions.

Macey told the official Luton Town website of his delight to make the move to Bedfordshire.

He said, “I’m really excited. When I heard there was some interest I was desperate to come back. I had such a good time here, even though it was very brief last time.

“When I came here five or six years ago, I was probably still a boy. I was still learning and I’d only played four or five professional men’s games before I made my debut here.

“I’m coming back with over 100 games under my belt, big experiences in big games and atmospheres in Scotland, and I feel like I’ve grown as a person and a player from that.

“It’s brought back a lot of memories today. I had a lot of fun in that ten-week spell and I look forward to starting again.”
