2 transfer scenarios to look out for at Luton Town in the next 48 hours

Nathan Jones will be fairly satisfied by his Luton Town’s side start to the season as they head into the first international break of the campaign.

Positive things were expected from the Hatters after a solid start to the summer, with a number of shrewd signings being made by the club.

They started the season strongly, too, defeating Peterborough 3-0 on opening day, and then bouncing back from a battling defeat to West Brom with a 1-0 win at Barnsley.

A 5-0 defeat to Birmingham City followed, but after a goalless draw with Sheffield United at the weekend, things could be a lot, lot worse at Kenilworth Road.

Jones’ side sit 12th in the league table with seven points, and the Welshman will now look to focus on his squad in the final days of the transfer window.

With the window closing on Tuesday evening, here, we take a look at two transfer scenarios we should watch out for over the next 48 hours…

Tayo Edun

We often see players make late moves towards the latter stages of the transfer window, and Edun could be one of them.

The full-back has been excellent for Lincoln City over the last couple of years, registering six assists from left-back for the Imps last season.

This season, he has already scored one goal and added two assists in four League One appearances.

Football Insider linked Luton and Peterborough with a move for Edun a few weeks ago, with the Hatters reportedly tabling offers for the 23-year-old.

It remains to be seen whether they reignite interest and test the waters once again.

Players to leave

Of course, if Luton are to bring players in, then offloading a couple will certainly help their cause.

The Hatters have endured a busy summer, with eight new signings taking the number of players in the squad up to 26.

This means that players will have to leave before the end of the window, otherwise they risk not giving one or two a shirt number or place in the squad.

Elliot Lee departed for Charlton on loan in the last week, and it wouldn’t be surprise to see players like Dion Pereira follow suit before the window closes.
