Ross Barkley makes shock Premier League return as he signs for Luton Town on free transfer

Barkley is back in the Premier League with Luton Town. The club has confirmed the surprising signing of former Everton and Chelsea midfielder, Ross Barkley. Last season, Barkley played for Nice but was released after 10 months, during which he scored four goals in 28 appearances.

Now, the 29-year-old is making his return to the Premier League with newly-promoted Luton. The Hatters announced his arrival in a shocking announcement on Wednesday. In an interview with Luton’s website, Barkley expressed his motivation to be back in the Premier League, stating that going from the Conference to the top flight is a great story. He also mentioned that he’s ready and feeling motivated to prove himself, as he hasn’t played as much as he would have liked in recent years.

Manager Rob Edwards spoke highly of Barkley, highlighting his experience at the top level and his international experience. Edwards believes that Barkley brings an x-factor to the team and has the ability to create something out of nothing, which is crucial in the Premier League. He expressed his excitement about Barkley’s arrival and encouraged the fans to be excited as well.

Barkley’s departure from Chelsea less than a year ago was by mutual consent, following a disappointing spell at Stamford Bridge. Prior to that, he joined Chelsea from Everton for £15 million and scored 12 goals in 100 appearances. His time at Everton was more successful, with 27 goals in 179 games after coming through the academy. This led to 33 caps for England and a place in the 2014 World Cup squad.

Luton will kick off their first-ever Premier League campaign on Saturday against Brighton at the AMEX stadium. In addition, talkSPORT has launched a new match center where fans can stay updated with the latest football fixtures, results, and standings. The match center provides information on Premier League fixtures, the league table, all fixtures and results, and all league tables.
Controversial English midfielder Ross Barkley has completed a shock return to the Premier League as he joins Luton Town on a free transfer, the club has announced.

Barkley, 28, enjoyed a stellar career in the Premier League for Everton when he was in his 20s, before leaving to join Chelsea in 2018. After making 37 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea, he subsequently signed for Aston Villa last summer, but has now completed a surprise return to England’s top flight.

It marks the latest twist in Barkley’s career, which has seen flashes of brilliance alongside periods of inconsistency and controversy. He has been criticised for his disciplinary record and inflammatory behaviour, but is expected to add strength and maturity to Luton’s midfield, and to be a significant force in Luton’s bid to remain in the Premier League.

Chief Executive Gary Sweet said: “Ross bring the experience of over a decade in the Premier League and it is a real coup for us to be able to sign a player of his stature.”

Barkley himself is very excited to join the club and believes he can play an important part in their fight for survival. “I’m really excited to join Luton Town and looking forward to helping the team stay in the Premier League,” he said.

The arrival of Barkley at Luton Town will certainly be one to watch, and could be the driving force behind their survival hopes.
