Luton Town Football Club can confirm our retained and released list as our successful 2022-23 season has now drawn to a close.
Following the expiration of their contracts, we have exercised the option for a further year for Gabe Osho, Dan Potts and Elliot Thorpe.
Negotiations are ongoing with Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, Tom Lockyer, Amari’i Bell and Luke Berry with a view to extending their time at Kenilworth Road.
Ethan Horvath, Cody Drameh and Marvelous Nakamba will return to their parent clubs following the end of their loan spells, we would like to thank them for their fantastic contributions to this historic season.
Matt Macey, Glen Rea, Dion Pereira, Carlos Mendes Gomes and John McAtee will return to the club following the expiration of their loan spells away from Kenilworth Road.
Captain Sonny Bradley, Henri Lansbury and Harry Isted will all leave the Hatters following the expiration of their contracts.
Defender Bradley made 175 appearances for Luton Town and has worn the captain’s armband since the League One promotion season in 2018.
We had already confirmed the centre-half’s departure at the end of his contract before the start of our play-off campaign last month.
Midfielder Lansbury, 32, will also leave Kenilworth Road after joining the club at the start of the 2021-22 season. The Arsenal academy graduate made 48 appearances for the Hatters, scored a memorable screamer at Hull City back in September and contributed to two play-off campaigns.
Isted will also depart after six years, with the goalkeeper having joined the Hatters from Stoke before the start of the 2017-18 League Two promotion-winning campaign. The 26-year-old made six appearances for the Town, including against Chelsea in last season’s Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round.
All at Kenilworth Road would like to thank Sonny, Henri and Harry for their wonderful service to the Club and for the respective roles they have each played in our three promotions.
From the Development squad, we have made offers to extend the contracts of Aidan Francis-Clarke and Axel Piesold.
Leaving the Club at the end of their deals are Daniel Idiakhoa, Avan Jones, Conor Lawless, Josh Neufville, Callum Nicolson, Casey Pettit and Josh Williams.
First-year scholars moving into their second year are Tyrell Giwa, William Houghton, Claude Kayibanda, Jack Lorentzen-Jones, Max Scott and Marcus Warren.
Negotiations are ongoing with Jack Bateson, Jake Burger, Archie Heron, Oli Lynch, Millar Matthews-Lewis and Josh Odell-Bature who have each been offered a professional contract to remain at Kenilworth Road.
Leaving the Club at the end of their scholarships are Sam Bentley, Oliver Hemlin, Rio Martucci, Darcy Moffat and Josh Swan. We thank all of the players who are leaving us for their service to the Club at all levels, however long or short a time they have been a Hatter.
