Winger Newton seals Luton switch

Luton Town

Luton Town have completed the signing of winger Adam Newton, who was released by Brentford earlier this month.

The 28-year-old former England Under-21 international has signed a two-year deal at Kenilworth Road.

Manager Mick Harford told the club's website: "I think it's a coup for Luton Town to sign a player of Adam's ilk.

"He is athletic, experienced and the kind of player that we have been looking to bring to this football club for a long time."

A product of West Ham United's academy, Newton made 40 appearances for Brentford after joining from Peterborough in June 2008.

Newton won promotion from League Two with Peterborough in 2007/08 and again this season with the Bees.

"He can get to the byline and deliver crosses and will offer us balance and width in the side," added Harford.

"At 28 he's in his prime. He's got the experience of winning promotion the last two seasons and he's come here to do it again."
