Luton Town set to make fresh offer for 23-year-old

Published

Luton Town are set to submit another offer for Colchester United defender Kane Vincent-Young before Thursday’s transfer deadline, according to Sky Sports’ live transfer blog (07/08, 22:22).

The Hatters are seemingly keen to add another full-back to the squad following the departures of Jack Stacey and James Justin to AFC Bournemouth and Leicester City respectively this summer.

Martin Cranie filled in at right-back in their opening day draw with Middlesbrough, but Graeme Jones will look to add fresher, younger competition to the Hatters squad before Thursday afternoon’s deadline.

And, with Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas claiming that they have already had a bid rejected for Vincent-Young, the Hatters now look set to launch a new offer for the 23-year-old.

The attacking full-back was arguably Colchester’s most exciting player last season, scoring three goals and making 44 appearances for John McGreal’s side who missed out on a League Two play-off spot.

With only one year left on his deal at the Essex club, a move away could well be likely. Charlton Athletic are also believed to be keen on signing the wing-back, but Luton look to be keen on doing a deal before the deadline at 5pm.

The Verdict

It looks like Graeme Jones and Luton Town are really impressed by Vincent-Young, and it’s no wonder why.

I watched him on plenty of occasions last season – defensively he is very able indeed, but going forward, he is a real nuisance with his electrifying pace and darting runs.

He can create chances for his teammates, and he would flourish in the Hatters’ style of play. He would be a very good signing for Luton.
