Luton Town have loaned 21-year-old Aaron Jarvis to the club until the end of the season.

The 6’ 2” frontman joined the Hatters from his hometown team in Basingstoke but has found games hard to come by at Kenilworth Road.

Jarvis joined Luton shortly after then Falkirk midfielder Craig Sibbald’s period training with the club.

He has scored once for the Hatters but is highly rated.

He has scored once for his parent club though hit 12 in the Southern League Premier Division in 2016-17.

Ray McKinnon said he had been seeking a new striker as well as a centre-half and landed Willian Edjenguele earlier this week.

The boss told the club’s website: “Aaron will be relatively unknown to a lot of Falkirk fans, but we have done our homework and are really pleased to bring him here. We have been speaking to Luton with regards to Aaron for a number of weeks now and are really pleased that they have, today, agreed to let him come out on loan.

Aaron Jarvis has also played for Boreham Wood and Basingstoke Town.

“Both myself and Darren know Mick Harford at Luton well and Aaron was highly recommended by him. We have watched him twice in person and he impressed us and will give us more options in attack.”
