Paul Buckle plundered the Football League for the third times this week to tie Wycombe Wanderers striker Scott Rendell down to a two-year Luton Town contract.
The 25-year-old is a player the Hatters manager had previously tried to sign permanently after taking him in a season long loan at former club Torquay United during the 2009/10 term, where he netted 13 times.
"I'm delighted," Buckle said, adding: "Scott didn't have to come and join us. He had a year left on his contract at Wycombe and had offers from other league clubs.
"He's got a brilliant track record of scoring goals and is another player with a promotion on his CV.
"He's a winner and he's aware of what we're trying to achieve here.
"I had him on loan at Torquay and tried to sign him but wasn't able to, but it's great we've been able to do a deal."
Buckle also revealed that his latest acquisition was attracted to playing in front of Luton's large following.
"Went we sat down Scott immediately spoke about our support," the boss said, adding: "He's aware of the fanbase and the grandeur and history of this club.
"He's under no illusions how tough the task will be, but he will score goals and will make goals. He's a great age - a brilliant age - and it's great he's here.
"One thing I can assure you is that he'll work his socks off, and I'm sure the supporters will appreciate that and welcome him with open arms to the Luton Town family."
