Luton Town have secured the signing of Crystal Palace’s England youth international defender Ryan Inniss on a month’s loan.

The towering 6ft 5in 18-year-old centre-half has represented England at U16, U17 and U18 levels and was the captain of the Eagles’ youth team last term.

Inniss spent a month on loan at League Two Cheltenham Town earlier this term, making four appearances with his senior debut coming in front of a crowd of 23,000 at West Ham in the Capital One Cup.

Boss John Still told the club’s official website: “He’s been our number one target.

“We’re always looking at players, always going to games and keeping an eye on players who are available and, fortunately, we have been able to bring Ryan in.

“What kind of player is he like? He’s a defender. I know that sounds obvious, but he heads it, he uses his physical strength to dominate in the air and doesn’t take any prisoners. I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring him here.”

Inniss is available for selection for Saturday’s FA Trophy tie with Cambridge and has been handed squad number 15.
