Graeme Jones issues honest transfer view as Aston Villa lurk

Published

New Luton Town manager Graeme Jones has admitted that the club may find it tough not to sell their star players in the summer, given their successful campaign last time out.

It was a remarkable season for all concerned with the Bedfordshire club, who were crowned Sky Bet League One champions after reacting well to the departure of Nathan Jones in January.

Now, new Hatters boss Graeme Jones will be looking to keep hold of the club’s most important players this summer, having endured such an impressive season.

James Justin is a player who certainly fits the bill of being a key player for Luton – the 21-year-old was named in the Sky Bet League One Team of the Season, and was also nominated for the EFL Young Player of the Year award.

The versatile full-back is now attracting interest from the likes of Leicester City and Stoke City, with reports also claiming that Aston Villa have submitted a £7.5million bid for the youngster.

And speaking to Luton Today amid this fresh transfer speculation, Jones has admitted that the club will find it tough not to cash in on their star players in the summer.

He said: “It would be silly of me to think, ‘I’ll cash in,’ I don’t want to cash in on anybody. But the reality is that with the season the boys have had, that might be the case.

“I hope not, but I need to be ready for every eventuality.”

Justin still has one more year left on his current deal at Kenilworth Road, so the club will be looking for a resolution sooner rather than later.

The Verdict

It is shaping up to be a busy summer at Luton Town, with Graeme Jones looking to get to grips with his squad.

Keeping Justin should be a huge priority for the Hatters, as he has been one of their standout performers this season.

He has a massive future ahead of him, and it will be very tough to keep hold of him.
