Luton Town have recently confirmed that Jack Stacey has left the club to join AFC Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.
Stacey spent two years with the Hatters, and played a starring role in their back-to-back promotions, as they now find themselves in the Championship.
The 23-year-old took to Twitter to issue a heartwarming statement to the Luton supporters, as his time at Kenilworth Road came to an end.
“I would just like to place on record my thanks for everyone connected to Luton Town. What an amazing two years we’ve had. Thank you to may team-mates, the board, Mick every member of staff along the way and of course the fans for your support over that time.
“It’s been a pleasure to play in front of a packed Kenilworth Road for the last two years and the fact that we were able to experience two promotions together in this time is something I will never forget.”
Stacey went on to admit that he is keen to test himself at a high level, and revealed that he will be keeping track of Luton’s progress in the future.
“The opportunity to test themselves at the highest level is something every player drams of and I am grateful to everyone that has created this opportunity for me.
“Luton Town are a club on their way back up to where they belong and they have gained a lifelong fan as I start my new journey in Bournemouth.”
I think this is a really good signing for Bournemouth, as he’s a player that has impressed me in recent seasons.
Stacey has still got age on his side, and was key to Luton’s back-to-back promotions in the last couple of years, so he’s got a point to prove in the Premier League.
I have my doubts as to whether he’ll be a regular starter for Eddie Howe’s side in the top-flight, but if he can build on the momentum he has shown with Luton, then he’ll provide the Bournemouth boss with a welcome selection dilemma.
