Josh McQuoid has spoken of his joy after joining League Two outfit Luton Town.

The Northern Ireland international was released by Premier League-bound AFC Bournemouth when his contract expired at the end of the season.

McQuoid has five Northern Ireland caps, the last of those won four years ago and he has penned a three year deal at Kenilworth Road.

The 25-year-old said: "The size of the club and the support was a major factor in signing but I want to achieve something here.

"I could tell from the first meeting with the manager that this was a club that wanted to go places and I didn't want to sign for a mediocre club happy just to sit in the middle of the league.

"I've come here to do well and help this club win promotion."

Town boss John Still said: "Josh is a very good player; experienced but a good age, too.

"He's a busy player, a buzzy one - he can play down the middle as a two or in a three - and he's versatile, can score and can create goals. I think his all-round play is first-class.

"I sense that he's hungry to resume his career and we're delighted to have secured his future."

McQuoid spent last season on loan at Coventry City in League One, scoring five times in 19 games, but began his career at Dean Court before moving to Millwall for £500,000 in 2011.

He was loaned to Burnley and then rejoined Bournemouth once more, helping the Cherries win promotion to League One in 2012-13, playing 39 times.
