He has joined Skrill Premier Division leaders Luton for a month and is available for the Hatters' league game against Wrexham at Kennilworth Road on Saturday.

McGeehan was rewarded for his FA Youth Cup heroics by being handed a two-year professional contract in the summer but has not been out on loan before.

'Cameron is all-action, he's strong, he can play, he can tackle and he gets around the pitch really well,' Luton boss John Still told Luton's official website.
