Brave, strong defender
Luke joined City as an Under-12 and is an accomplished left-footed centre back and a vocal presence on the pitch.
Following signing his scholarship in July 2020, Luke moved in to the EDS squad for 2020/21. An impressive season saw Luke help the EDS win the PL2 title and also feature in the matchday squad for the first-team on four occasions.
He subsequently made his senior City debut in September 2021 in our 6-1 Carabao Cup win over Wycombe Wanderers.
While continuing to be a mainstay of the EDS side, Luke also featured on the first team bench several times.
Having signed a new contract extension with the Club in June 2022, Luke spent the first half of the 2022/23 season on loan with Championship side Huddersfield Town.
Mbete then spent the second halfof the 2022/23 season on loan with League One outfit Bolton Wanderers.
And he is continuing to gain valuable experience away from City as he spends the 2023/24 campaign on loan at Den Bosch.
