DARREN Currie is looking forward to the challenge of getting Luton Town straight back into the Championship.

The former Blues winger started pre-season training with the Hatters yesterday after agreeing a two-year deal with the League One side who were relegated last term.

Currie, 32, links up with Kevin Blackwell, who he worked with when the manager was coach at Plymouth Argyle.

Currie said: “Kevin came in for me immediately after watching the play-off final and a few days later we had talks. He made me an offer straight away and although I went away to think about it Luton were always in pole position.

“Kevin has told me his ideas and ambitions and Luton is a club I can see giving it a real go this season.”

Currie left as a free agent after never being part of Jim Magilton's plans last season and wishes his old club well, although he feels they need to strengthen soon.

He said: “I hope Ipswich can get the players in that they need so that they can progress.”

Currie has signed a two-year deal at Luton Town while Daryl Knights has completed his move to Yeovil on a one-year contract.

Another former Blues winger has also made a switch with Dean McDonald signing for Inverness Caledonian Thistle on a 12-month deal after a year at Gillingham.
