After a hugely impressive campaign for Luton Town, a move to the Premier League looks to be on the horizon for James Justin.
The versatile full-back was one of many standout performers for the League One title-winning Hatters last season – he was named in the division’s Team of the Season, and was also nominated for the EFL Young Player of the Year award.
The 21-year-old scored three goals and produced seven assists from defence and was a regular for the Bedfordshire club, but now looks as if Graeme Jones will have to replace the homegrown star without having the opportunity to properly manage him.
The Telegraph claims that Justin is set to undergo a medical at Leicester City on Wednesday, ahead of a proposed £6million move to the King Power Stadium.
It would be a blow for Luton to lose perhaps their most prized asset, but the full-back probably deserves the chance to impress in the top-flight, and the funds will be beneficial for the Hatters upon their return to the second tier.
Here, we take a look at Luton fans’ reactions to this news…
True. The chance of PL football for Justin, Luton well recompensed for his services, money for the squad and new ground. Although would be great to keep him, it's a good deal for all.

Fair play to JJ. He will be great under Brendan Rodgers.

Good move all round. And a nice earner for the club to hopefully reinvest into the team……

We'll only let him go if we have a replacement lined up, so don't be surprised if Bola happens too.
