Luton Town are said to have had a bid for Swindon’s Scott Twine turned down in the past few days, with reliable journalist Alan Nixon tweeting the news out yesterday.
The attacking midfielder has been the subject of intense interest from several Championship clubs since being recalled from his loan spell at Newport County by the Robins at the turn of the new year, with Reading, QPR, Bournemouth and Brentford having also been mentioned as potential suitors.
During his previous loan spell with the Exiles, Twine notched up an impressive seven goals and five assists across all competitions, leading to his return to the County Ground at the turn of the new year.
Here, we take a look at what the latest is on the player’s potential move to Luton this January.
What do we know so far?
Nathan Jones has previously admitted that Twine is a player that the club are watching closely although he did also state that no offer had been made for the versatile 21-year-old.
Collins? Berry? – Can you name which Luton Town player scored each these 15 goals this season?
However that was prior to Nixon’s post on a bid being made, which means that Luton have appeared to have upped the ante in their pursuit of one of the EFL’s best young prospects.
The Hatters’ boss has also admitted previously that he would be open to bringing in another young player into the club this window, if it indeed helps to improve the squad that they already have at their disposal.
Is a move likely to happen this month?
It seems that Luton’s interest in the player is refusing to go away and surely Swindon will have to be open to going to the negotiation table with the Championship club over a player who has less than six months left to run on his current contract with the club.
A move this month seems likely for the player as the Robins aren’t in a good position financially due to the ongoing pandemic, meaning that a chance to cash in on their young prospect could be too good to turn down if a Championship side meets their asking price for Twine.
