Edward Yaw Okyere "Ed" Asafu-Adjaye (born 22 December 1988) is an English professional footballer, currently playing for Luton Town.



As a player in his second year as a scholar at Luton Town, Asafu-Adjaye was sent on loan to Isthmian League Premier Division side Walton & Hersham, making his debut for the Swans in March 2007 and scoring in a 1–0 win over Carshalton Athletic. He went on to make seven appearances during his loan spell, playing at right-back and scoring three goals.

Asafu-Adjaye was rewarded with a one-year professional contract during the summer of 2007. Unable to break into the Luton side at the beginning of the 2007–08 season, he was instead loaned to Conference National side Salisbury City in January 2008 by then-Hatters manager Kevin Blackwell.[1] He made his Salisbury debut in a 3–1 home win over Oxford United.[2] Asafu-Adjaye continued to impress during his time with Salisbury, in which time he earned several man-of-the-match accolades.

With Luton Town in administration and heading for relegation to League Two, new manager Mick Harford decided to recall Asafu-Adjaye from his loan spell in late March, and he made his Luton Town debut in a 2–1 home victory over Crewe Alexandra just days after returning to Kenilworth Road.[3] Operating at right-back, he went on to make seven league appearances for the Hatters as they were relegated. During the summer of 2008 he signed a new contract, despite interest from his former loan club Salisbury City.[4]

In the 2008–09 season, Asafu-Adjaye established himself as the first choice right-back in the Luton team, and also started at centre-back in Luton's 3–2 victory over Scunthorpe United in the Football League Trophy final at Wembley Stadium.[5] On 30 June 2009, Asafu-Adjaye agreed to a one-year contract extension, keeping him at Luton until 2011.[6]
