Luton Town are interested in signing David Sesay, according to Football Insider.
Crawley could look to cash in on the defender, who only has a year left to run on his current contract, and since Luton have sold full-backs for multi-million-pound deals this summer they aren’t short of money.
Losing James Justin and Jack Stacey was a blow to the Hatters but they have shown they are planning for the long-term by identifying Sesay as a target.
He is only 20-years-old and has just 21 professional appearances, so it is unlikely he would come straight into Graeme Jones’ first-team, and instead will be prepared as one for the future.
Sesay burst onto the scene last season and performed very well despite his inexperience. He is an attack-minded full-back which suits Luton well and he got up and down the left flank at a rapid pace last season, and is ideal for a wing-back role should Jones choose to operate in that style.
This is a good signing by Luton and Sesay ticks a lot of boxes. He already suits the club and he has a lot of potential to add to his game and learn from other accomplished defenders in the squad.
It will be a big jump up to the Championship, though, especially after playing so few games, and I’m not certain he will be able to fill the shoes of the players he is replacing.
He is still learning the game so Luton should be looking to bring in a more proven full-back, someone more dependable who Sesay can learn from, although he does need and deserve his chance in order to improve.
