Warriors striker has left Leicester City to join English Championship side Luton Town on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old, who signed a new contract last month, is leaving the Foxes after twelve and was a prominent feature in the club’s Under-18s and Under-23s teams.

He was named the Leicester’s Academy Player of the Season in 2016.

The transfer marks Muskwe’s return to the English Championship after spending a six-month loan spell with the now-relegated sign Wycombe Wanderers last season.

Speaking on the signing of the player, Luton manager Nathan Jones said: “We are delighted to have signed another player who has been a target for a while. We saw what a threat Ade can be when we came up against him at Wycombe last season. He’s gained valuable experience of the Championship from his time there.

“Coming from a wonderful club like Leicester, he has great pedigree and his arrival adds quality right across the front three as he can play numerous roles. Having beaten a number of other teams to his signature, we can’t wait to get working with him.”

Leicester City’s statement on Muskwe’s departure 

Young Leicester City striker Admiral Muskwe has joined Sky Bet Championship side Luton Town in a permanent deal, subject to Football League approval.

The 22-year-old Zimbabwe international joins The Hatters for an undisclosed fee after previously impressing in the second tier during a loan spell with Wycombe Wanderers last term.

Muskwe, who came through the ranks of Leicester City’s Academy, scored three times in 15 appearances for Wycombe following his arrival on loan in January 2021 and also helped Swindon Town earn promotion to the League One in a 2019/20 loan spell.

The striker joined the Club’s Academy at the age of nine and has represented the Foxes at Under-18s and Under-23s levels, as well as in the Hong Kong Soccer Sevens tournament.

The Football Club would like thank Admiral for his contribution and wish him every success in his future career.
