Luton Town respond to fresh AFC Bournemouth approach



Premier League side AFC Bournemouth have agreed a deal with Luton Town to sign Jack Stacey, according to reports from The Sun journalist Tom Barclay.

The Hatters have already lost one promising full-back this summer, with homegrown star James Justin departing for top-flight side Leicester City for a reported fee of £6million.

And it looks as if another one of Luton’s most talented players could also be poached by a Premier League side, with AFC Bournemouth believed to have agreed a £4million deal to sign Stacey.

The right-back was named in the League One Team of the Season after a string of impressive displays for Luton last term, and he finished the season with four goals and eight assists to his name.

The 23-year-old has made less than 100 appearances for Luton since his move from Reading two years ago, but now looks set to move to the Vitality Stadium after helping them win back-to-back promotions.

It is understood that Eddie Howe’s men had three bids rejected for the attacking full-back, but now they look to have agreed a fresh deal with Luton to sign the player.

Stacey is set to undergo a medical on Monday, having rejected an offer from former boss Nathan Jones at Stoke City.

The Verdict

This is another big blow for Luton, with another Premier League side coming in to take one of their best players.

Stacey was incredible for the Hatters last season, and was just as excellent at going forward as he was at going backwards, and is definitely one of the best young right-backs in the country.

For him, a move to Bournemouth is definitely an exciting switch, given how well the likes of David Brooks and Chris Mepham have done since signing for the Cherries.

£4million is decent money for him, though, and Graeme Jones will be looking to reinvest wisely this summer.
