The 21-year-old, who was born in Lewsey Farm and went to Halyard High School, which is now Barnfield West Academy, also played for Bramingham FC before a move to Premier League giants Arsenal.

He left the Emirates to join Swansea City in the summer though and, speaking exclusively to the News/Gazette, he said: “Luton came to Swansea last week and said they wanted me on loan and I thought it was a great opportunity.

“I grew up in Luton, but have never played for them, so I can’t wait.

“Growing up here all my life, I think it will be a great experience, a good opportunity and a massive club as well.”
