Luton Town sign Taylan Harris from Reading as Aribim Pepples heads to Inverness
Luton Town have announced the signing of 18-year-old forward Taylan Harris from Reading.
Harris, who has been a standout for Reading's under-21 side this season, marked his senior debut with a goal in the EFL Trophy in September.
Mick Harford, Luton Town's head of recruitment, praised the newcomer's abilities.
“Taylan is technically very good; he’s a winger or forward who’s very quick, has a real eye for goal and likes a shot from range," he said.
"He’s also a good dribbler, who likes to beat players and make things happen. We’re looking forward to working with him and are excited to see how he develops.”
Expressing his ambition, Harris said, “When you see Luton winning 4-0 and players scoring hat-tricks in the Premier League, it gives you a great feeling of what can come in the future so I’m delighted to be here and can’t wait to start."
"My aim is to play in the Premier League – every player in the world wants to do that. This has given me an opportunity to do that and achieve that.”
In related news, Luton Town striker Aribim Pepple has been loaned to Scottish Championship side Inverness Caledonian Thistle until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old forward, who joined Luton from Cavalry FC in 2022, has gained EFL experience on loan at Grimsby Town and in the National League with Bromley.
