Luton Town reportedly join Middlesbrough in pursuit of Wolves defender rated at £5 million

It has been a positive start to the summer transfer window at Luton Town, with the Hatters securing the signings of Chiedozie Ogbene, Mads Andersen and Tahith Chong thus far.

Rumours concerning the Bedfordshire club would suggest that there will be plenty more recruitment before the Premier League campaign kicks off in under a month.

The latest name to be associated with Luton, as detailed in a Twitter update from Daily Mail journalist Tom Collomosse, is Wolves defender Ryan Giles, who spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough.

As detailed in this update, Boro also hold interest in the 23-year-old and are eager to bring him back to the Riverside, but this time, on a permanent contract.

Enjoying a fantastic campaign in the Championship last time out, it would appear that Giles will struggle to pave his way to first-team football with the Midlands outfit and that is reflected in the suggested price tag.

Collomosse's tweet states that Giles could be available for around the £5 million mark, as it remains to be seen how his situation plays out.

Heavily featuring for Middlesbrough last time out, the 23-year-old missed just one league game and started 43 times as the Teesside club managed a fourth-placed finish.

Proving to be a real source of creativity, Giles has gained a reputation for being a fantastic crosser of the ball, and subsequently, he managed 11 Championship assists last time out, with only Sunderland's Jack Clarke and Coventry City's Viktor Gyokeres registering more than the Wolves defender.
