Luton Town have signed Derby County midfielder Jacob Butterfield on a free transfer after the Rams mutually agreed to end the 29-year-old's contract.

Butterfield had been on trial with newly-promoted Luton during pre-season.

The former Barnsley and Huddersfield man has agreed an undisclosed-length deal and becomes the Hatters' seventh signing of this summer's window.

"It's a big season, a really exciting time for the club, and I'm delighted," Butterfield told Luton's website.

"They are great lads. I settled in straight away. They are a welcoming bunch and I've been really impressed so far."

He made 80 league appearances for the Rams, whom he joined in 2015, scoring eight league goals for the club.
