Luton Town defender Sonny Bradley has suggested that there are still conversations to be had between himself and the club over a potential new contract ahead of the summer window.
Bradley is one of a group of Luton players who see their existing deals come to an end following the conclusion of the campaign. The defender has been an instrumental performer for the Hatters this season and he has managed to help them record 12 clean sheets in his 36 Championship appearances. That has seen him play a key role in helping them secure a top-half finish.
There were reports during that January transfer window that Preston North End were interested in making a potential move to sign Bradley as they looked for replacements for Ben Davies. However, in the end, he remained with the Hatters to try and help them enjoy a strong second half of the campaign and finish up as high as they could in the table.

Speaking to Luton Today, Bradley has admitted that there are conversations he needs to have with the club over his potential future. While he also insists the Hatters will be looking to bring in players in the summer transfer window to try and kick on from their top-half finish.
He said: “There’s some conversations to be had.
“I think the ball’s rolling with the majority of players that the manager wants to keep and each window that I’ve been here, the club has strengthened.
“They’ve got a way of doing that, I think Mick (Harford, assistant boss) plays a big part, they always bring in good characters and good players.
“So for me, there’s no doubt that the summer window, the club will be looking to strengthen and if we want to progress again next season and build on this top half finish then that probably has to happen.
“That’s out of my hands, that’s for higher up in the club to sort out, but I’m confident that we will do that and that will happen.”
It seems like something of a no-brainer for Luton to sort out Bradley’s future and offer him another deal to keep him at the club. There is a reason why Preston were interested in him in the January transfer window and that is because he brings to the table a lot of leadership qualities and is also a very dependable presence at the heart of the defence.
Bradley seems to be keen to have discussions with the club and try and secure himself a new deal, and given his importance to the side it would be a surprise if they choose not offer him a new contract and allow him to walk away for free. Luton will be needing to make other signings as well this summer, but securing his long-term future could be just as important.
Were Luton to allow Bradley to leave, then you would imagine there would be many clubs interested in making a move for him on a free transfer. Therefore, the defender would not have to worry about his future for too long if he were to be released by the Hatters.
