He made his way through the Royals’ youth ranks before going on to feature 10 times for the senior side, also picking up senior experience on loan with Aldershot Town, Bristol Rovers and Yeovil Town.

Now, Osho has opened up about his move to Luton Town and his decision to leave Reading in the summer. The Hatters’ new signing said this is the opportunity he was looking for after deciding to leave Reading.

“It’s taken a bit of time since I first heard it was a possibility of coming to Luton, but I’m buzzing to be here,” Osho said to the Hatters’ official club website.

“I made a decision to leave Reading because I wanted an opportunity like this for the next part of my development, and I’m so pleased it’s been sorted and I’m now a Luton Town player.

“I’ve only got good experiences of Kenilworth Road from last season. I can’t wait to get started and get back out there in an orange shirt!”
