Pereira? Osho? Luton Town transfer scenarios that could materialise in the January window

Published

on

Luton Town had a very productive summer, adding nine fresh faces to the squad, whilst letting the likes of James Collins, Matty Pearson, and Joe Morrell depart Bedfordshire. 

Nathan Jones made it clear that his recruitment strategy this summer revolved around adding athletic players, whilst Henri Lansbury and Cameron Jerome were also brought in for their ability and experience at this level.

Jones is also someone who is not keen on bringing many loan players in. Admittedly, he did bring Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to Kenilworth Road last season, however, he left a big void when he headed back to Leicester City.

Given how they have recruited, they have managed to plug that gap, with the aforementioned Lansbury, Allan Campbell, Elliot Thorpe, all joining the club.

It remains to be seen if Jones will try to strengthen his squad in January, but on the other hand, there could be a couple of departures.

1) When was Luton Town founded?

Dion Pereira needs minutes

Dion Pereira is a player who excites Luton fans, and even with Luton still having a few integral players out injured, he is struggling to make the 18-man squad.

The 22-year-old has shown promise in the few minutes he has been given, however, a loan move to a side in League One might be the next best move.

Jones previously said in the summer that he wanted to find a temporary destination for the young attacker, however, nothing materialised from his comments in early August.

Pereira has a lot of talent, and there seems to be a fair bit of hype around his name, but ultimately, he needs regular game time if he is to progress with The Hatters.

Gabriel Osho may also need minutes

Gabriel Osho starred at centre-back in Luton’s opening day victory against Peterborough United, but with Sonny Bradley, Reece Burke, and Tom Lockyer, all nearing a return, his spot in the first-team was already under threat.

The 23-year-old then was trusted in the holding midfield role, and whilst it was a position completely know to him, he shone and gave Jones an extra option.

However, over the past few weeks, Osho’s game time has been limited. He is certainly a promising player for Luton at present, but it is difficult to see where he fits in at present.

Derby County and Huddersfield Town of the Championship, as well as Ipswich Town and Portsmouth of League One, all displayed interest in a loan deal for Osho during the summer, and that, remains a possibility in January.
