Connolly now joins Dave Challinor's side, becoming their fourth signing of the summer after they won the League Two title last season. The Hatters will play in the third tier for the first time since the 2009/10 campaign. 

Challinor said: “To sign someone of Callum’s character, versatility and experience, having playing over half of his career in the Championship, is a brilliant coup for the club.



“He had a disappointing back end of last season from his perspective and I know how much he’s looking forward to a fresh start and motivation to really kick on and get back to the levels he’s been at earlier in his career.

"He comes in at a great age with his peak years in front of him and I’m sure he’ll complement our team as we enter into the exciting challenge ahead of us.”

In total, he scored four goals in 35 games for the Blues during his loan spell from Everton in 2017/18.
