Former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe has explained why he has moved to new EFL Championship side Luton Town.
The 26-year-old player has arrived at the reigning EFL League One champions as a free agent having spent the past two seasons in the Championship with Millwall.
Last term the former England youth international made 31 appearances for the Lions and found the back of the net three times, helping them survive in the second tier while reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals.
“I’m really excited to be here. It’s been a long drawn-out process doing the contracts, but I can’t wait to get going," Tunnicliffe said.

“I met the gaffer (Graeme Jones) about four or five weeks ago. After the season finished he wanted to get to know me face to face and see my personality, and that’s when I knew that something could happen here.
“Knowing his resume, and where he’s worked and people he’s worked with is impressive," he added.
"But sitting and talking to him – listening to how he likes to play the game, how this year he’s planning on playing – just really excited me and I can’t wait to get stuck into it.”
Tunnicliffe came through the ranks at Manchester United in an era where the Red Devils, under Sir Alex Ferguson, were never out of the Premier League's top two.
He made two substitute appearances in the League Cup but gained valuable Championship experience during loan spells with Peterborough, Barnsley and Ipswich.
