Kazenga LuaLua joins Luton

The winger had been available since leaving Sunderland at the end of last season.

Nathan Jones believes the signing of Kazenga LuaLua will give Luton’s squad a quality that it currently lacks.

LuaLua, 27, who spent seven years at Brighton, was a free agent after leaving Sunderland at the end of last season and signs after training with the club for just over a week and a game for the development side against AFC Wimbledon.

The forward, brother of former Newcastle striker Lomana, joins the Hatters on a deal until the end of the season.

“He’s a fantastic talent,” said Jones on the club website. “He has something that not many have, totally different from what we have here.

“He’s a quick, powerful, potent attacking player which is something that is in rare supply – and is something we felt we needed.

“We knew he was available and I’ve tried to get this done for a little while now, so it’s not just been recently. I spoke to Kazenga and his agent before the season started, but the fact that we’ve been able to get him in and persuade him to come here is a good coup for us.”

Luton have made a positive start to life in League One after gaining promotion last season, sitting 12th after nine matches.

LuaLua worked with with Jones during time spent together at Brighton and the winger says that experience was a factor behind the move.

“I know Nathan from Brighton, and he’s a very good coach,” LuaLua said. “He’s good at what he does, so it made it so easy for me to come in and train with the boys here.

“It’s good to sign until the end of the season, to get some game time and enjoy my football.”
