Luton Town have signed midfielder Shandon Baptiste following the end of his Brentford contract.

Baptiste, 26, becomes the Hatters' first signing of the summer.

He leaves the Gtech Community Stadium after four and a half years, having helped Brentford reach the Premier League and played 55 top-flight games for the Bees.

"I feel like Luton is the right place for me," he told the Hatters' website.

"Watching the club play last season, it was clear that something big was happening here and I want to be a part of it.

"There are good players and a good manager here so I'm hopeful that we can do big things together.

"I've had a lot of injuries during my career, but I feel like I've passed that now and hopefully I can just look forward to doing great things in the Luton shirt."

Baptiste began his professional career at Oxford United before his move to west London in January 2020.
