Luton Town boss Nathan Jones has admitted that he would like to loan out Brendan Galloway this month, with the Hatters chief telling Luton Today that the player needs a temporary move away from the club.
The full back has only made six appearances for the Kenilworth Road outfit since joining on a free transfer back in July 2019 and has found his time at the Championship club tough after being plagued with injuries.
A product of the MK Dons academy, Galloway’s fine form as a youngster earnt him a move to Premier League Everton, for whom he made just 21 appearances in between taking in loan spells at both Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion in what was another injury ravaged stage of his career.
Now it appears that the 24-year-old could well be heading for yet another temporary switch, with Jones stating the following about a potential move for the defender:
“Brendan needs a loan, Brendan does need a loan, he’s not played a lot of football in recent seasons and he needs that.
“Through no fault of his own he got injured here and the old manager (Graeme Jones) brought them here and fully expected to use him.,
“When he got injured, it’s very unfortunate, but he’s worked so hard to get back, he’s a real good lad around the place.
Did Luton Town sign each of these 14 players for more or less than £1 million?
“I thought he did very well considering the amount of time he’s been out, to play a good Reading side and did very well, I was delighted with him.
“But I think he needs a loan now as there will be decisions to be made come the end of the season and he wants to be in the best position possible.”
Luton are also said to be keen on loaning out Galloway’s fellow defender Peter Kioso once more after cutting short the player’s spell with Bolton Wanderers due to an injury to James Bree.
This would be the best move for all parties concerned with Galloway unlikely to be afforded much in the way of regular first team minutes at Luton.
It is clear from the comments made by Jones that the club still hold the player in such high regard and clearly see him as one that can go away and come back a better player.
A spell in either League One or Two would certainly benefit a player who has been so unlucky with fitness issues over the past few years.
No doubt there will already be potential suitors lining up a move for the player over the next few weeks now that his availability is public knowledge.
