Allan Campbell has thanked Motherwell fans for their support after sealing his move to English Championship club Luton Town.
Millwall were interested in Campbell and a bid from an unnamed club was rejected by Motherwell in January. But now his Fir Park deal has expired, Luton Town have agreed a compensation fee and sell-on clause with Motherwell to sign Campbell. The midfielder is a product of the ‘Well academy, making over 150 appearances in claret and amber.
Campbell said of his move to Nathan Jones’ side: “It has a really good feel to it. I have heard a lot of good things about the club and how close they are with the fans and how well the midweek games get here, so I’m looking forward to getting started.
“I can’t thank the supporters and Motherwell enough for what they did for me coming through. But as a footballer, there is a time in your career where you feel you need to take that next step and Luton have given me the chance to come down here and really try and prove myself at this level, kick-on and develop me as a player and a person.
“I think this is the next level up. I am an ambitious person, I set targets for myself and I’ve come down here, set targets and now I am going to try and get them. I spoke to the manager and they really want to try and develop me as a player and that is the main thing.”

Motherwell chief executive Alan Burrows believes it’s a good move for all parties: “We wish Allan all the very best after earning a good move to an excellent club in the English Championship. Luton Town have been a pleasure to deal with. Throughout this process, they have been extremely professional.
“We have reached a compromise that is both fair in the short-term but also allows Motherwell the potential to share in future success, should Allan’s career continue in the same upward trajectory. We look forward to watching his career go from strength to strength in English football.”
