Luton Town defender Steve McNulty has signed a new contract with the club.

McNulty, last season's player of the year, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal to keep him at Kenilworth Road until the summer of 2016.

The 30-year-old joined the Hatters from Fleetwood in January 2013 and was an ever-present last season as Luton stormed to the Conference title.

"Steve has been a tremendous asset for this football club since I have been here, both on and off the field," Hatters boss John Still told the club's official website.

"His performances last season at centre-half were colossal and I'm hoping for much more of the same from him next season and beyond."

McNulty added: "I've had a good first year here and all I want to do now is kick on even further.

"I'm at a club that doesn't want to stand still and the manager has done everything this summer to ensure we'll give League 2 a really good go. We're in good shape and there's much more strength in depth.

"I'm happy to be at Luton. Before I moved here I was considering packing football in altogether, but signing here has been the best thing I've ever done."
