Former Hatter George Thorne has joined League One Oxford United on loan from Derby County until January 2020.
The 26-year-old spent the second half of last season at Kenilworth Road, as L:uton claimed the League One title, making three substitute appearances.
Thorne, who has featured 73 times for the Rams signing signing from West Bromwich Albion in 2014, said: "I spoke with Karl (Robinson) and there are good things happening at Oxford right now.
"His sides have a reputation for playing good football and that suits me really well.
"I have worked hard to get fit again and now I just want to get match sharp and help Oxford build on a good start to the season.”
United head coach Robinson added: "George is a fantastic passer of the ball and can open up a defence when games get tight.
"He has had terrible luck with injuries but would have played a lot more games at a much higher level otherwise.
"Even so he has played over 100 games in the Premier League or Championship.
"He knows he has a point to prove but we know we are getting a very good footballer and hopefully the move works out perfectly for all of us.”
