Luton Town have recently confirmed that Kazenga LuaLua has signed on a permanent deal for the Hatters as they prepare for life back in the Championship.
Football League World’s Luton Town fan pundit, Dylan Bhundia issued his thoughts on the winger’s arrival at Kenilworth Road for his second-spell and has high hopes for the 28-year-old.
“Jones has said a number of times that he’s a massive fan of LuaLua, as he should be based on last seasons performances.
“He provides so much dynamism and the ability to make something out of nothing, something that will prove invaluable in the Championship.”
LuaLua made 22 league appearances for Luton last season, and Bhundia was delighted to see the midfielder arrive ahead of the new season, and felt that he was better than the other options Graeme Jones has available to him.
“We already signed winger McManaman on a free earlier in the window, with our other wide options being Harry Cornick, Elliott Lee and George Moncur.
“However, LuaLua certainly tops all three of them and can also play in a front two, as he did last season. This massively boosts our strength in depth.”
The Luton fan pundit went on to admit that he doesn’t expect to see many departures after LuaLua’s arrival, although oen man could be heading for the exit door if interest is shown in his services.
“LuaLua was part of our squad last season, and given the small squad that we currently have and Graeme Jones’s desire to bring in a few more players, I can’t see anyone (apart from Jake Jervis) being given the green light to leave.
“LuaLua’s signing means we’re in a healthy place in the forward areas.”
Luton will be hoping to get off to the best possible start next season when they take on Middlesbrough in their first game back in the Championship.
