Centre-half Reece Burke became the Hatters’ second signing of the summer just weeks after helping Hull City win promotion from League One.

The 24-year-old arrived at Kenilworth Road as a free agent, with his contract with the Tigers coming to an end, and is a familiar face to fans and players alike after he played 90 minutes for Hull in the 3-0 win at the Kenny in the 2019/20 season,and has played with a number of current Town players before.

Burke joined West Ham aged nine in 2003 and 11 years later made his first debut against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup, a game in which Dan Potts started and Elliot Lee was on the bench for.

During his time with the Hammers, the defender spent time on loan at Bradford, where he was named Player of the Season, as well as spells with Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers.

His career at the Premier League club ended in 2018 when he left with 15 first-team appearances to his name to join Hull on a permanent transfer.

In the years since he has been a regular for the Tigers, making 110 appearances in total which includes 37 matches this season as well as five goals during the campaign.
