Midfielder Adam Murray has signed a two-year deal with Luton Town after being released by Oxford United.

The 28-year-old played 21 times in the Blue Square Premier last season, but missed Oxford's promotion run-in with a back injury.

He told the Luton website: "Obviously I was looking for league football and that's my aim with Luton.

"Everyone knows that a club of Luton's stature should be playing at a higher level, but we are where we are."

The former U's captain still had two years to run on his contract at the Kassam Stadium but was released by mutual consent because he lived too far away from Oxford.

"The manager was bringing in new players and there were some personal issues too," he said.

"But once the decision was made it didn't take much persuasion from the people at Luton to sign here."

Murray made 88 Blue Square Premier appearances for Oxford, scoring 11 times, and has previously played for Macclesfield, Torquay and Carlisle among others.

He started his career at Derby County, featuring on 61 occasions.
