James Justin issues heartwarming message to Luton Town fans after move to Leicester City



Leicester City completed the signing of Luton Town defender, James Justin on Friday evening as they prepare for another season in the Premier League. 

Justin was a standout player for the Hatters last season, as they were crowned League One champions after an impressive league campaign.

The 21-year-old made 43 league appearances, and his positive performances evidently didn’t go unnoticed with the Foxes being long-term admirers of the full-back.

Justin came through the youth ranks at Luton, and went on to make 114 appearances for the first-team, so it’s certainly a club that will remain close to his heart.

He took to Twitter following the completion of his move to Leicester to issue a heartwarming message to the Luton supporters.

Luton will be hoping they can find an adequate replacement for the promising full-back, as they look to adjust to life back in the Championship after a lengthy spell outside of the second tier of English football.

The deal for Justin is believed to be in the region of £6m (according to the Daily Mail), and he’ll be keen to justify that hefty price tag that Leicester have paid for him.

It gives Brendan Rodgers a welcome selection dilemma heading into next season, with Justin facing a tough test to secure a regular spot in the starting XI, with England full-back, Ben Chilwell currently occupying the left-back starting spot.

But competition for places is never a bad issue to have as a manager, and Rodgers will be hoping that he can see the best out of both of his full-back’s heading into next season, where the Foxes will be looking to build on some positive showings towards the end of last term.

The Verdict: 

This is a smart bit of business by the Foxes in my opinion.

Justin was excellent for Luton last season, and it was only a matter of time before he left the club to move on to bigger and better things.

He’s been a fantastic servant to Luton over the years, and I think he’s got the work ethic and ability to adjust to the step up of Premier League football.

The £6m fee that Leicester have paid for him could prove to be a bargain if he builds on the impressive performances he had shown for Luton last season.
