Date of birth
A product of the renowned Crewe Alexandra Academy, Luke has been a reliable performer for both Crewe and Leeds United during his career to date.
Having come through the ranks at Gresty Road, Luke made his first team breakthrough in 2008 in League One making eleven appearances before really establishing himself in the team with the Alex back in League Two.
After four more campaigns with the Alex and over 180 games it was Leeds United that won the battle for Luke’s signature to take him to the Championship where he quickly established himself in the centre of midfield with the Elland Road club.
A century of appearances over three seasons showed his value to the club but a change in management saw him fall out of the first team picture this term and having long been an admirer of Luke’s talents, Nigel Clough swooped within days of the transfer window opening in January to bring him to the Pirelli Stadium for the rest of the season.
He then began a second loan spell at the Pirelli Stadium on 4 July 2017.
