Luton boss Nathan Jones has said: “We’re delighted to get this deal for Reece done because we’ve liked him for a while.

“He’s a good age, has good pedigree and is different to what we have at the club. He turned down other Championship clubs to come here, so we are convinced of his commitment to become a top player, which we feel he will achieve.”

Burke has been on the books at Hull for the past three years and helped the Tigers win the League One title last season.
