Luton Town move to reject bid from Premier League club for key defender



Championship newcomers Luton Town have moved to reject a big money bid for right-back Jack Stacey.

The Hatters have a number of players in demand this summer following promotion last term, and according to respected journalist Tom Barclay, the club have moved to reject a bid from Premier League side Bournemouth.

It is believed that the Cherries are thought to want to add Stacey to their ranks as they continue to look to the lower leagues to add talent to Eddie Howe’s squad. The likes of David Brooks and Lewis Cook have joined in recent seasons, with Howe not averse to giving players from the second and third tiers their chance in the top flight.

However, it would appear Bournemouth need to up their offer for Stacey, with Luton so far standing firm having already lost key man James Justin this summer.

Stacey has become an integral part of the Hatters squad ever since making the move to Kenilworth Road from Reading back in 2017, being an ever present last season as the club stormed to League One promotion and the title.

Luton are looking to make an impression back in the Championship and will be determined to hold onto their better players, or at least command a hefty fee for their stars.

The Verdict

Good for Luton on this one I say.

£3m is a derisory offer for a player who has been so so impressive for the club in the last few seasons, and at just 23, he’s surely only going to go on and get better.

Stacey won’t have a massive desire to leave Luton you wouldn’t think, but Premier League interest can often turn heads, so it’s definitely one to keep an eye on. If Bournemouth, or indeed Celtic do meet Luton’s asking price, it’s hard to see him being able to turn down the terms they’d be able to offer.
