Attacker Kazenga LuaLua revealed there was only one club he was going to be playing his football for this season, and that was Luton Town.

The 29-year-old's new contract was announced this afternoon, with the former Brighton and Newcastle winger joining Danny Hylton, Glen Rea, Elliot Lee and Luke Berry in re-signing.

Last term, LuaLua had initially left the club after failing to agree a new contract, before making a U-turn and re-signing three weeks later, just under a fortnight before the campaign started.

However, that was not going to happen this term, as after he played a starring role in Town staying in the Championship, scoring the winner in a crucial 1-0 success at Hull City, he told the club's official website: "There was never any question I wasn’t going to re-sign. I love it at Luton and I couldn’t leave it as late as last year!

“I was so happy with the way last season finished.

"Scoring the winning goal at Hull was massive but it wasn’t about me personally, it was about the whole squad, staff and club coming together to pull off the Great Escape.

“Those pictures afterwards summed up the spirit of this great club and the wonderful times we’ve experienced here.

“This is my third season but the first that I’ve been in from the very first day of pre-season, so I’m hoping to hit the ground running and really kick on.”
