Luton boss Nathan Jones believes that his first signing of the summer, Accrington Stanley's Jordan Clark, is the right 'type of player' for the Hatters.

The 26-year-old moved to Kenilworth Road this afternoon, after an impressive four years at the Wham Stadium, scoring 29 goals in 191 games for John Coleman's side.

Prior to that, Clark was with Shrewsbury, where he netted twice in a 2-0 win over Luton back in August 2014, also having spells at Hyde, Scunthorpe, Chesterfield and Barnsley.

Speaking to the club's official website, Jones said: "We are delighted to get Jordan.

"He’s a player that we’ve thought highly about for a long, long time.

“He’s a creative player, someone who has a real hunger to do well and from the moment that I met him, I knew that he’d be an excellent Luton player.

“He’s come from a very attacking Accrington side and he’s a very adaptable, creative footballer who has a great work ethic, very athletic – so he ticks a lot of boxes on becoming a Luton Town player.

“From the moment I knew he was available, to meeting him and now signing him, he’s reiterated everything we thought about him. I’m excited to work with him and see what he does for us.

“He’s hungry, he really wants the opportunity and that’s the type of player we’ve always gone for at Luton.

"We are delighted to sign him and we welcome him to the club.”
