The 18-year-old captained City’s Under-18 side to FA Youth Cup glory last season, scoring a penalty in each leg of the final against his former club Chelsea.

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.

“He worked with Jeff Wood [goalkeeping coach] at Norwich, and Jeff’s seen first-hand what a prospect this boy is.

“It’s another player we’ve had our eye on – another target that we have identified and brought in. That’s pleasing and having Cameron on board gives us another option in midfield.”

The Northern Ireland Under-21 international was originally with Fulham but was bought by Chelsea for £80,000 as a 10-year-old, before being released six years later.

“It’s a great opportunity for Cameron to experience senior football for a month,” Academy manager Ricky Martin told Norwich City’s official website.

“He’s also going joining up with a successful squad who are currently top of the league, which is very rare and will without doubt help his development a lot.”

  • Good move for Cameron. Next season he might be ready to go on loan to a L1 or L2 club? He looks a good prospect. Good luck.

  • Tom Adeyemi seemed to be doing quite well at Championship level, goldie, but I think he`s had an injury? I think Prem next season might be too much, too soon for Cameron - but you never know; Josh is closing in. Let`s hope the Academy is beginning to produce the end product. OTBAC.
