Luton reportedly lining up move for attacker

Luton Town are interested in signing Wigan Athletic striker, Devante Cole, according to Sky Sports.

Cole, son of ex-Manchester United forward Andy, is out of contract in the summer having not started a single game for Wigan since joining the club in January 2018.

He signed from Fleetwood Town where scored 22 goals in three seasons, before signing for Paul Cook’s Wigan.

The 24-year-old made only six League One appearances for Wigan in the second-half of the 2017/18 season, before being loaned to Burton Albion for the 2018/19 campaign.

An uninspiring spell at Burton has been followed by another at Motherwell in the first-half of this season – in 19 Scottish Premier League games this season, Cole scored four goals.

He’s since returned to Wigan after his six-month loan at Motherwell ran out, and Wigan are thought to be keen on offloading the forward this month, with his contract expiring in the summer.

Luton face competition for the forward’s signature though, with Hull City said to be lining up a bid.

Which player joined Luton from Barnsley in January 2019?

Graeme Jones side currently sit bottom of the Championship table having lost six of their last seven in all competitions, and with three-points separating them from 21st-place Stoke City.

The verdict

Luton are in desperate need of someone to reignite their season, but will Cole be the man to do just that?

He’s certainly unproven. It’d be a risk for Jones to pursue the 24-year-old but at this stage in their season they have very little to lose, as relegation looks all but confirmed with every passing week.
