Luton Town boss John Still is trying to sign Andy Drury from Crawley Town, reports the Leighton Buzzard Observer.
The former Luton midfielder spent eight months at Kenilworth Road and was signed by Ipswich Town in January 2011 for £150,000 after some impressive displays for the Hatters.
The 30-year-old left Portman Road for Crawley Town in June last year and made 46 appearances for the Reds last season, scoring five goals.
Drury has a year left on his contract at Crawley.
Hatters boss Still told the Observer:
“We have enquired and we’re waiting to see what the situation is.
“We thought it would be something that if it could work would be a good signing for us, but it’s down to Crawley really.”
But Crawley boss John Gregory rubbished the speculation:
“I’ve heard the rumours but I’m not sure Andy Drury would want to drop down to that level.
“There’s been no contact and nothing offered.
“Really it’s a compliment to Crawley Town that people are talking about our players.”
