Luton Town have signed midfielder Nathan DoyleThe Hatters are delighted to be able to confirm the signing of former England youth international midfielder Nathan Doyle.
The 27-year-old has joined the Town on a one-year contract after spending the previous two seasons playing regularly for Bradford City, including 39 appearances in League 1 last term.
The all-action midfielder player helped the Bantams to promotion in 2012/13 – a unique season for the Yorkshire club saw that Doyle twice play at Wembley. He started in City’s famous League Cup final appearance against Swansea before then playing a starring role in Bradford’s League 2 Play-Off final win over Northampton – in which he set-up the first goal.
Town boss John Still said: “Nathan is a top quality player and I think we’re very fortunate to be able to bring him to Kenilworth Road.
“He’s only 27 but he's played over 250 games – most of them in the Championship, which underlines his ability.
“He barely missed a game for Bradford last season and was a driving force behind their success the season before last. He’s got masses of big-game experience and knows what it takes to get out of League 2.
“He’s a very good player, capable of playing in a number of positions, but he’s a central midfielder who can pass, create and break-up play. We’re confident he can be a great success with us.”
Doyle will wear squad number 26.
