Luton duo Gabriel Osho and Josh Neufville have both joined National League side Yeovil Town on loan until January.

Defender Osho, 22, signed for the Hatters as a free agent last month after turning down an offer to stay at fellow Championship club Reading in the summer, playing in three development friendlies since.

He has previously spent time at Huish Park when with the Royals, with a short spell last season, making six appearances for the Glovers.

Attacker Neufville, 19, has been with the Hatters from U10 level and was part of the youth team that won the EFL Youth Alliance Cup in 2018.

He signed his first professional contract just over two years ago, making his first team debut in September 2018, during the 2-1 Checkatrade Trophy group stage win over Brighton U21s.

Neufville played twice more in the competition that season, and then came off the bench in the EFL Cup win over Ipswich Town last term, before heading out on loan to National League clubs Solihull Moors and Woking.

On their temporary exits, Town boss Nathan Jones, who has played for the Glovers himself, said: “Gabby has come in and proved to us that he can be a real good addition to the squad, we just felt he needed some game time prior to January and we were able to get him out to a good club in Yeovil.

“With Josh, we want to get him experience and the higher we can get him that, the better he is.

“Going down to Yeovil means that he gets a good experience of staying away, he has a mate initially in Gabby, and I obviously know that they’ve got a good tradition with young players having been there myself, so he can only benefit and help Yeovil at the same time.”

The duo could make their Glovers debuts tonight against Eastleigh.
