Luton Town January Transfer Tracker pt. 2
With just under two weeks before the January transfer window slams shut, we are yet to announce a signing.
This almost solely goes down to our excellent recruitment drive in the summer, with the lack of January action this time around a credit to Nathan Jones and Co.
It remains to be seen what the rest of the window has in store for us Luton fans, but ultimately, a quiet month is a good month.
There are some rumours still floating around regarding us, here, we take a look at those latest stories…
On Sunday, Alan Nixon of The Sun (16.01.21 - pg. 60) reported that we were battling away with Ipswich Town for the signing of Christian Walton.
Jones has previously admitted his admiration for the 26-year-old shot-stopper, with Walton spending a loan spell with the Hatters during the 2016/17 League 2 campaign.
Nixon’s latest update via Twitter has suggested that the Tractor Boys are set to strike a transfer agreement with the Seagulls.
Walton’s contract at the Amex Stadium expires in the summer, and whilst he was recalled by the Premier League outfit from Ipswich, it appears it was only to sanction a permanent departure.
Whether Luton are able to strike an agreement with Newcastle United for the exciting young midfielder is a big question in this window.
The Athletic claimed last week that we were closing in on the signing of the 19-year-old.
Whilst admitting that there is truth behind the rumours, Jones has since gone on to reveal that a move was far from complete.
There appears to be a lot of excitement around Anderson’s name, with the young midfielder thriving with the Premier League club’s U23s this season.
Peter Kioso has returned following his loan stint at Stadium MK.
Enjoying an excellent first half of the season with the Buckinghamshire outfit, Kioso could be tasked with a Championship start as early as tomorrow.
There are doubts as to whether Reece Burke will be fit enough to feature against the Royals, with Tom Lockyer struggling to make a matchday squad.
Subsequently, Kioso could slot in as part of a back three, whilst he could give James Bree a welcomed break, with the 24-year-old playing every minute of this Championship campaign thus far.
Toby Lock of the MK Citizen has suggested that there is scope for the League One club to re-sign the 22-year-old this month.
