Luton Town have announced their sixth summer signing after adding ex-Bournemouth striker Josh McQuoid to their ranks.

McQuoid was on the books at Bournemouth as a teenager, and after making 69 appearances, scoring ten goals, joined Millwall in 2010 for an undisclosed fee thought to be around £500k.

The 25-year old failed to impress at The Den and spent a year on loan at Burnley before returning to Bournemouth in 2012.

The pacey striker, who can also play on either wing, has penned a three-year deal after seeing his contract at Bournemouth came to an end following their promotion to the Premier League. 

McQuoid will no doubt be joining the club looking for a promotion challenge, and John Still would have spoke to the player about the ambitions of the football club, after telling the media he has one more promotion in him before his time is up.

"Time is running out for me, at my age seriously, but in my time here there is another promotion to be had, without a shadow of doubt," said Still. 

The 65-year old has worked wonders at Luton Town since his arrival in 2013, guiding the Hatters to the conference title in his first full campaign at the club. 

Still continued: "On and off the pitch, I look back at the last two years here and the progress made has been phenomenal. The club has become reunited."

It took the Hatters five years and five managers to get out of the conference but did it in some style under John Still, totalling an impressive 101 goals, and 140 goals.

Still has won three promotions as a manager, including bringing Dagenham and Redbridge up from the Conference to League One.
