Centre-half Reece Burke joined the Hatters in 2021 just weeks after helping Hull City win promotion from League One.

The 25-year-old arrived at Kenilworth Road as a free agent, with his contract with the Tigers coming to an end, 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-team 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 last season as well as five goals during the campaign.

He had to bide his time initially but went on to feature 32 times during his first season as a Luton player. Burke scored twice in the FA Cup against Cambridge United and Chelsea in consecutive rounds and played a key role in securing sixth place.
