Luton Town could still make more additions to the squad this summer, with Donervon Daniels taking part in training this week, according to Dunstable Today.
The former Wigan and Blackpool defender is currently a free agent after being released by The Tangerines this summer, but if he impresses Graeme Jones then he could secure himself a contract.
Jones revealed that the 25-year-old first joined up with The Hatters at the beginning of pre-season before an injury ruled him out of training.
Luton have made nine additions to the squad this season and three of those were defenders, but Jones feels Daniels’ versatility across the back four could make him a useful addition to the squad.
Having lost Jack Stacey to Bournemouth, Matty Pearson and Martin Cranie are the only two senior squad members able to fill in at right-back, and that is a role which Daniels could fulfil.
Daniels’ preferred position is in the middle but he occasionally played on the right for Blackpool, and if he can prove his fitness and ability then he may have just enough to persuade Jones to sign him.
Despite his versatility, Luton moving in for Daniels doesn’t seem like the best option to make, and it would only make sense if they offer him a short-term deal, which would allow them cover for the defence until January.
Daniels has spent most of his career playing below the second-tier, and with only 20 Championship appearances to his name he lacks the experience that Luton require right now.
They have recruited well in terms of players with Championship records, but since the majority of the squad is lacking on that front it is important Jones chooses his new recruits with experience in mind, and therefore Daniels doesn’t fit the bill.
