It was always going to happen, but with the summer approaching, Mick Harford has finally said it.
The Hatters manager admitted (quotes sourced by Luton Today) that a number of Premier League and Championship clubs were interested in Luton’s star assets after an incredible season in League One, with the likes of James Collins, Sonny Bradley and Matty Pearson all being star players for the London side as the club sit top of the table.
Academy product Justin James has also shone for Luton this campaign, being nominated for the EFL Young Player of the Season and becoming a fan favourite at the club.
Luton look set for promotion to the Championship, but with Premier League teams swimming around some of the best players, Harford could be braced for an onslaught of offers for their prized assets, and the Hatters should be thinking about cashing in for the long-term success of the club.
After such an incredible season, Luton will not have any problem attracting players to replace anyone who is sold over the summer, and with Championship and Premier League clubs now willing to spend on talent in the lower leagues, it is a genuine possibility two or three of the Hatters’ standout performers this season could be sold to increase funds for the club.
The reality is that Luton are a club that needs all the money they can get, and if a bid of £5 million is to come in for even just one of their players, the London side will take that offer in a heartbeat.
That kind of money can go a long way for a club as ambitious as Luton Town, and even though it might hamper the team in the short-term, the long-term effects of such funds will help the club in ways fans can’t even imagine.
Luton fans, would you be okay with the club selling some stars over the summer? Let us know!
