Luton Town have moved quickly to make their second summer signing by handing former Millwall and Gillingham central midfielder Danny Spiller a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old joins the Hatters a day after boss Paul Buckle brought Stevenage captain Ronnie Henry to Kenilworth Road.

Spiller began his career as a youngster with Gillingham, progressing through the ranks to clock up well over 100 league appearances with the Priestfield outfit, scoring six goals.

He signed for Millwall in 2007 but only made six starts at the New Den. Spells with Wycombe Wanderers, Welling and Dagenham & Redbridge followed but he returned to his first club in 2010, scoring four times in 45 league appearances prior to his exit this summer.

Buckle said: "Danny is an energiser. He fits the bill perfectly of what we need in the centre of midfield.

"He might be 30 but he's got the legs and is incredibly mobile. He can pass and tackle to great effect.

"He's also got the know-how and has played in the Championship for both Millwall and Gillingham - and that's no mean feat.

"He's able to play in a variety of positions too, should that be necessary and versatility in the squad is something I'm very keen on."
