Midfielder Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu has agreed a new contract with the Hatters extending his deal through to the end of the 2017-18 season. The former West Ham man, who first signed for Town on loan from the Hammers in November 2013 before making the move permanent in January 2014 has made 66 senior appearances for the Club scoring 5 goals.
Manager Nathan Jones was keen to get the talented 22 year old signed up beyond the end of this season:
‘I see Pelly as an important player for me – at his best he brings a great energy and drive to the team – it was a priority for me to secure him on a new contract and to be fair he has been keen to get it all sorted out early too. There is much more to come from Pelly and I’m sure all Luton fans will be looking forward to seeing that progress in the seasons to come.’
Pelly was delighted to have extended his stay with the Hatters and added:
‘I’ve always believed the club was the best place for me to continue developing as a player. I’m enjoying my football under the Manager and can’t wait to get going again next season.’
