Luton Town have finalised their eighth signing of this summer’s transfer window with the arrival of Admiral Muskwe from Leicester City on a permanent deal, as per the club’s website.
Muskwe, 22, spent the second half of last season on loan at Wycombe Wanderers, scoring three times in 19 appearances as the Chairboys were relegated from the Championship.
The Zimbabwe international has previously spent time on loan at Swindon Town but never made an appearance for the Leicester first team, although he was named the Foxes’ Academy Player of the Year in 2016.
Luton manager Nathan Jones now has a wealth of attacking options, as Muskwe joins the likes of Cameron Jerome, Carlos Mendes Gomes and former Wycombe team-mate, Fred Onyedinma, in arriving at Kenilworth Road this summer.
The Hatters’ boss had this to say on his latest signing: “We are delighted to have signed another player who has been a target for a while. We saw what a threat Ade (Muskwe) can be when we came up against him at Wycombe last season. He’s gained valuable experience of the Championship from his time there.
“Coming from a wonderful club like Leicester, he has great pedigree and his arrival adds quality right across the front three as he can play numerous roles. Having beaten a number of other teams to his signature, we can’t wait to get working with him.”
Luton continue to look outside of the box in their attempts to consistently improve as an EFL club year-on-year, and the signing of Muskwe could end up being another feather in the hat of their recruitment department.
Nathan Jones has spoken of how the collaborative effort behind the scenes has allowed the Hatters to make such an impressive start to this transfer window, and this latest addition will only add greater depth and quality to a frontline that is now without the talismanic James Collins.
Although Muskwe was not able to score the goals to keep Wycombe in the Championship last season, he caught the eye with his pace and movement, and it would be no surprise to see a manager as talented as Jones get the best out of him.
This looks to be another smart move from Luton.
