Curtis Osano has left Luton Town to join League Two side AFC Wimbledon.

The 25-year-old Kenyan-born defender, who was out-of-contract, is reunited with Dons boss Terry Brown, who gave him his first taste of senior football during a loan spell at Aldershot Town in 2006.

Former Reading trainee Curtis went onto make his name during four seasons at Rushden and Diamonds before the Nene Park club folded last summer.

After that he joined the Hatters, initially on trial, but was handed a contract at Kenilworth Road until the end of the season. He played 32 times for the club including the 2-1 Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final defeat to York earlier this month.

Osano told Wimbledon's official website: “Terry has known me since I was a kid and he knows what I am capable of.

"I learned a lot from him when I was at Aldershot. I spoke to Terry and he told me where the club is hoping to go.

"He told me that he knows what the problems were last season and he is trying to fix them next season. I think the club will progress and I want to be a part of it.

"Once I got my medical done I just wanted to sign as the chance to work again with Terry for a Football League team was too good to turn down.”

Brown said: "I was very lucky to work with Curtis when he was an apprentice at Reading. He came in and played centre-back at the time, but since then he has developed into a good right-back.

"He is a beast of a boy, who has great power and strength and is a very good overall defender. Curtis will give us an outlet in that right-back spot as he is capable of bursting down the wing and I think he will be a great signing for the club.

"He is a boy who has played against us for Rushden and Jamie Stuart spoke incredibly highly of him.”
