Luton Town: Target Jordan Willis seems to make decision

Luton Town: Target Jordan Willis seems to make decision

With a season back in the Championship just over a month away, Luton Town are seemingly yet to click into gear when it comes to buying players. 

With Callum McManaman from Wigan Athletic the Hatters’ only signing this summer, the biggest story surrounding the club seems to be negotiating a deal for James Justin with Leicester City, who the Telegraph report is on the verge of joining the 2015/16 Premier League winners for a reported £6 million.

Of course, we are only in the opening stages of the transfer market, but with teams in the Championship already actively signing players, with Stoke City signing five on one day, Luton may face being behind other sides when it comes to summer arrivals, though that could all change very soon.

The Coventry Telegraph report that Coventry City defender Jordan Willis is all but certain to leave the club this summer as the 24-year-old Luton target failed to turn up for the start of pre-season training with the Sky Blues, and with other sides interested in the experienced defender, the Hatters can make a big statement by signing the centre-back.

Although Willis is just 24, the former Coventry skipper has been an established member of the League One side since the 2013/14 season, playing over 200 games for the club and helping the Sky Blues to both a EFL Trophy in 2017 and to promotion from League Two to the third-tier a year later, scoring in the play-off final against Exeter City in a 3-1 win.

Jones has previously spoken to Luton Today about how the player caught his eye while watching the Sky Blues on TV, so capturing him while more established second-tier clubs such as Bristol City are linked (per the Coventry Telegraph too) would be somewhat of a coup for a newly-promoted side.

Luton fans, would Willis be a good signing this summer? Let us know!
