DARREN Currie, 32, has joined League One Luton Town on a two-year deal.

The midfielder joined Ipswich for £250,000 in December 2004 making 89 appearances and scoring nine goals. His Portman Road contract was not renewed when it ended on June 30.

Luton boss Kevin Blackwell said: “Darren is an old head whose job will be to help nurture our young lads through.

“We had a young squad who lacked experience in certain areas and at certain times in games last year and Darren will provide us with some extra strength in midfield.”

Currie joined pre-season training with his new colleagues yesterday. He made his name at Barnet, before moving on to Wycombe and Brighton.
