City have not revealed the fee Luton will pay for the 20-year-old midfielder but have described it as a 'six-figure sum'.

McGeehan spent the second half of last season on loan with the Hatters, scoring three goals in 15 appearances, and will now make the permanent switch to Bedfordshire on July 1.

Confirming the deal, a City statement explained: 'City will benefit from a significant proportion of any future transfer fee should the Hatters sell Cameron on at a later date.

'Norwich City would like to thank Cameron for his efforts while with the club, and wish him every success for the future.'

McGeehan skippered Neil Adams' under-18 side which beat Chelsea over two legs in the FA Youth Cup final in 2013, playing alongside the likes of Josh and Jacob Murphy, Harry Toffolo and Carlton Morris.

He first joined Luton on loan for the second half of the 2013/14 season, scoring three goals in 18 games to help the Hatters gain promotion from the Conference Premier.

After signing a new two-year deal with Norwich in the summer of 2014, McGeehan joined League Two side Cambridge United on loan in January of this year, making six appearances, including two high-profile FA Cup clashes with Manchester United.

The Northern Ireland Under-21 international then returned to Kenilworth Road for the rest of the season and has now signed a two-year deal with the League Two club, who narrowly missed out on the play-offs at the end of the season.

Luton manager John Still told his club's website: 'It goes without saying that we are thrilled that Cameron will be a Luton Town player. We all know what Cameron is capable of; we have seen it in the last two seasons.

'Cameron has become a Luton Town player. He gets it. He loves the club and the fans have really taken to him. That's what we have tried to install in all of our players and that can only bode well for now and the future.'
