News broke, late yesterday afternoon, that Andrew Shinnie’s tenure as a Luton Town player had come to an end.

The 31-year-old had been on loan at the League One club, Charlton Athletic, until the end of the season.

With Shinnie’s Luton contract running out at the end of this season and with the player becoming a free-agent, Luton and Charlton colluded to make the deal a permanent one.

Charlton, sticking to the EFL rules, knew that they could only name 5 loan players in a match day squad and that they had 6 on their books.

By agreeing a permanent deal, Shinnie now knows he can be included in all match day squads.

Before his loan spell became a permanent deal, Shinnie had made 16 appearances for Charlton scoring 2 goals.

The player was always held in high regards and it really is the end of an era.

Once the news broke, social media was alive with people wanting to thank Andrew for his commitment to the Hatters cause and wish him all the best at his new club, a point the following illustrate perfectly:

I am sure you will join me in thanking Andrew for his commitment to the Hatters cause and wishing him all the best as he strives to continue his career in professional football.

  • technically he’s was as good as we’ve got in our squad and certainly ahead of other midfielders who remain and offer little. For whatever reason it was very disappointing to see Championship football being a step too far for him but i fully expect to see him chip in goals and assists in League 1 where he’ll be afforded that little bit more time on the ball to work his magic.
