Recruiting intelligently has become more than just a theme at Luton Town, it has become a habit.
Using a combination of detailed, data-driven techniques and more traditional visual scouting methods to spot talent, the business the Hatters have conducted thus far has been mightily impressive.
The Likes of Alfie Doughty, Cauley Woodrow, Ethan Horvath and Carlton Morris have touched down at Kenilworth Road thus far, with Nathan Jones now looking to apply the finishing touches before the new season begins.
Luton begin their Championship campaign with a home fixture against Birmingham City at the end of this month, with the Hatters eager to put things right against opponents they’ve had great difficulty against in recent memory.
Whilst we wait for the new season to begin, here, we take a look at three Luton Town players who have an uncertain future at the club.
An exciting prospect Luton have on their hands, the immediate future of Dion Pereira is a hard one to fully assess.
Impressing when he has had glimpses of first-team action, he also thrived whilst out on loan at Bradford City last time out.
Technically very gifted, and a player who reads the game well, it remains to be seen what the next step will be for the 23-year-old.

Should Luton opt to sanction another loan departure, they will likely be seeking League One suitors who could help bridge the gap from where he is now to playing regular Championship football.
The future of Elliot Thorpe is another interesting one, as before pre-season started, it perhaps looked more likely that a loan move would be sanctioned.
However, the 21-year-old has featured at right-wing-back in the club’s first two friendlies of the summer and could be deemed as a deputy option to James Bree following Peter Kioso’s departure.
A player who would probably benefit from a temporary spell away from the club, it remains to be seen whether the Hatters will agree a loan move.
Should an offer come in for Dan Potts, then it would be no surprise to see the experienced defender depart during these summer months.
Perhaps better suited to the left-sided centre-back role in today’s game, Potts is someone who could have a positive influence at the top-end of League One.
The Hatters are seemingly after another defender this summer, something that may only occur if Potts is to leave this summer.
