Cameron Jerome leaves Luton Town by mutual agreement

We can confirm that striker Cameron Jerome has today left Luton Town Football Club for personal reasons, with his contract cancelled by mutual agreement.

Manager Rob Edwards stressed this was a decision that will enable Cameron to continue his career with a club closer to his north-west home.

“Cam had expressed for a while that this may be a feeling that was going to come,” said Edwards. “He’s been doing a lot of travelling, he’s away from his family a lot, and at 36 years of age he still wants to play football, but he was just finding it hard as a commitment. I think we can all empathise with that, and we did.

“Like anything there is a human side to it and we felt that if there was an opportunity for him to get a club that still ticked his boxes, in terms of playing for something like we are, but it was close to home, then it was an opportunity that we believed we could help him with.”

Speaking glowingly of Cameron’s input on and off the pitch, Edwards added: “I’m disappointed to see him leave because he’s been brilliant for us. He’s a great guy and he’s been a mentor, a leader.

“But also, I want people who can fully, fully commit and it was becoming harder for him to do that. That’s not his fault, it’s just because of his circumstances now and at his age, he needs to be close to family. When you’re a dad and your kids are a little bit older, being around them is important.

“An opportunity has come up that is really good for him, so he leaves with our best wishes and we thank him for everything he has done for the football club.”

Jerome joined the club in June 2021 and would become a valued member on and off the pitch as part of the Hatters’ successful season in the Championship, reaching the play-off semi-finals. 

The forward scored five goals in all competitions including league goals against West Brom, Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers. He also contributed with seven assists in 37 total appearances.

This season, the 36-year-old has been used off the bench 21 times in the Championship, scoring once in the win over QPR, to amass a total of 61 appearances during his year-and-a-half as a Town player.  

Thank you and good luck to you and your family for the future, Cam!
