McCourt just can't wait to begin his Luton adventure

By Staff Reporter

Northern Ireland international Paddy McCourt has joined League Two side Luton Town. After penning a two-year deal with the option of a third, the Londonderry man says he's thrilled to join a club that is "very ambitious".

"I'm delighted," said the 31-year-old. "It's good to get things sorted and I'm looking forward to meeting up with the lads and getting things started.

"It's a club that's very ambitious. I've spoken with the manager a few times and I've spoken to the chief executive and they have big plans so that was my thinking behind signing the two-year deal. Not only do I want to be successful this year but I want to carry that on next year as well."

The winger was released from Brighton at the end of the season after a loan spell with League Two side Notts County. He joins his Northern Ireland team-mate Josh McQuoid at Kenilworth Road after the striker joined the Hatters two weeks ago.

McCourt wants to add to his 14 international caps with Northern Ireland pushing for a place at the Euro 2016 finals.

Meanwhile, Celtic have announced the signing of defender Saidy Janko from Manchester United on a four-year deal.
