Luton Town midfielder Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu has put pen to paper on a new two year contract at Kenilworth Road.

The 23-year-old made 24 appearances in an injury-hit campaign for the Hatters, scoring twice, although featured far more once manager Nathan Jones took over in January.

With his contract running out in the summer, boss Jones was delighted to see the former West Ham United youngster staying put as he told the club’s official website: “I see Pelly as an important player for me as at his best he brings a great energy and drive to the team.

“It was a priority for me to secure him on a new contract and to be fair he has been keen to get it all sorted out early too.

“There is much more to come from Pelly and I’m sure all Luton fans will be looking forward to seeing that progress in the seasons to come.”

Meanwhile, Ruddock Mpanzu, who has now played 66 times for the club, netting five goals, added: “I’ve always believed the club was the best place for me to continue developing as a player.

“I’m enjoying my football under the manager and can’t wait to get going again next season.”
