A member of Bristol City's 2014/15 League One and EFL Trophy winning side is now available for free after his contract was terminated.

Luton Town have agreed with midfielder Luke Freeman to terminate his contract, which will now allow him to make his next move.

Freeman had time remaining on his contract at Kennilworth Road but now the Premier League new boys have decided to let him pursue opportunities elsewhere. He was one of four players made available for transfer, and now the process has been sped up by his contract being terminated.

The 31-year-old joined last summer when Nathan Jones was in charge and helped them towards their promotion. He made 26 appearances last season, scoring two goals as they were promoted from the Championship through the play-offs.

In a statement published on their official club website on Thursday, the Hatters said: “Luton Town can confirm that we have reached an agreement with Luke Freeman to be released from his contract by mutual consent.

“We would like to thank Luke for his efforts last season and wish him all the best for his future career.”

He is now free to find a club, with no pressure of next Friday’s transfer deadline hanging over him. It was reported earlier this week by transfer journalist Darren Witcoop that Freeman was ‘up for grabs’ and that Rotherham United might be interested.

Freeman was a popular figure at Bristol City and was an influential member of the 2014/15 side that won the League One and EFL Trophy under Steve Cotterill. He spent two-and-a-half-years at Ashton Gate and made 121 appearances with 10 goals scored.

Freeman joined QPR for an undisclosed fee in January 2017, and later joined Sheffield United for a club record fee, and then had loans Nottingham Forest and Millwall, before signing a permanent deal at Luton.
