WANDERERS have completed the loan signing of Luton Town full-back Peter Kioso until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old was voted man of the match in the Hatters’ recent Carabao Cup tie against Manchester United and has also turned out against Reading in the competition.

Dublin-born to Congolese parents, Kioso bounced back after being released by MK Dons as a teenager to work his way back up the league with Dunstable Town and then Hartlepool United.

He earned a move to Luton in January and had been on Ian Evatt’s shopping list in the summer, only for Nathan Jones to initially keep the young defender to play in the cup competitions.

“He’s a player I’ve admired for a long time and have chased since the start of pre-season,” the Whites boss said. “Peter can play in a variety of positions, has great pace and power, and adds quality to our squad.”

Kioso trained with the squad yesterday and goes straight into the reckoning to face Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

Speaking about the defender’s potential departure, Luton boss Nathan Jones said Bolton was the perfect destination to send him out for experience – whilst also welcoming Reading’s Gabriel Osho to his squad.

“We’ve got a young, hungry right back in Peter Kioso that needs testing now,” he said.

"He showed in the Man United game that he’s ready to play, I can't give him that game time at this point, so he needs development, he needs games, he needs testing.

"We’re able to do that with a good club, a good club for him, that’s going to give him that game time and in the meantime, we get another one (Osho) that we can try and develop.

"A young, hungry one that’s athletic, that’s in a good place, so it’s like a conveyor belt.

"We’re always looking at the next one, and this allows us to really keep that development process going and we’re very pleased with the business, if that comes off."

After completing his loan switch, Kioso told the club: “I’m delighted to sign and I can’t wait to get going and show everyone what I can do.”
