Musonda Signs Luton Extension

Musonda Signs Luton Extension

Luton Town have this evening confirmed that teenage defender Frankie Musonda has now penned a contract extension keeping him at Kenilworth Road until the summer of 2019.

The 19 year old centre half has signed his deal through until 2019 but it also includes the option of a further year.

He has been with us for the past eleven years, coming through our Academy ranks - captaining the hugely successful youth side of 2015/16 - and he made his senior bow last season as a substitute at Mansfield.

He has since made a total of eight appearances, including five starts in last year's EFL Trophy - wherein he also opened his club account by scoring a header in the two one victory over Gillingham last August.

With extensions for James Justin and Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu in recent weeks, manager Nathan Jones said he was delighted to see another player commit to the club.

Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer explained.

'We are really pleased to get another of our talented young players secured on a long-term contract. Frankie has shown real good promise since I came to the club, and is another of the successful youth team that won the league and cup double and reached the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup two seasons ago. He`s developing every day in training and is a player we believe will continue to improve, so we are delighted he`s committed his future to us.'

Musonda himself added.

'I`m really happy. I`ve been here for more than half of my life now - this will be my 12th year - so it`s great news for me. JJ has been here as long as me, so from us both to be here now for at least another two years is great news. I couldn`t be happier for him with how he did last season and the new contract he`s signed.'

Adding.

'The gaffer has given me all my opportunities with the first team and I just want to keep trying to impress him and show him that I`m ready to play more and more games. In training my game has definitely improved since he came in, and hopefully it will just keep getting better and better.'
