Luton Town join Portsmouth in Leicester City player pursuit

on

Luton Town are weighing up a summer move for Leicester City midfielder Callum Wright, as per a report from Gloucestershire Live. 

It is believed that the Foxes will run the rule over the midfielder this pre-season, with several Championship and League One clubs interested in permanent and temporary moves.

A recent report from Portsmouth-based outlet The News credited Pompey with an interest in the young midfielder who spent last season on loan at Cheltenham Town. 

Netting nine times and providing a further five assists in 34 third-tier outings, Wright emerged as a regular starter at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, missing two months in 2021 because of an ankle injury. 

The Hatters have developed somewhat of a partnership with the Foxes in recent seasons, with Leicester completing the multi-million-pound signing of James Justin from Kenilworth Road, whilst Kieran Dewsbury-Hall spent the 2020/21 season on loan with the Hatters.

Who did the club sign Elijah Adebayo from?

Last summer, Admiral Muskwe arrived in Bedfordshire from Leicester, with these recent dealings between the two clubs a potential boost for Luton in this scenario. 

The verdict 

Cheltenham enjoyed a strong return to the third-tier this year following their title-winning 2020/21 campaign, with Wright’s ability and productivity helping to ease the transition back into League One. 

Possessing excellent technical skill, and the ability to cause chaos in the final third, the 22-year-old could be deemed as ready for the Championship next season. 

With Luton finishing inside the second-tier play-offs, and ambitions likely to remain high for the next campaign, it will be interesting to see if the Hatters are chasing a permanent deal or not. 

Nathan Jones can be reluctant to strike loan deals at Luton, although Dewsbury-Hall’s temporary spell was a successful one.
