Luton – Eighth Summer Signing Confirmed But…

Image for Luton – Eighth Summer Signing Confirmed But…

There had been speculation in numerous media sources that Luton Town were set to add another forward to the squad.

But, with the club having already signed Cauley Woodrow and Carlton Morris, to provide competition for the likes of Elijah Adebayo, Cameron Jerome and Harry Cornick, I couldn’t get my head around the logic of any such deal.

However, yesterday evening The Official Luton Town FC Site confirmed that the 23-year-old Grimsby Town forward, John McAtee, had put pen-to-paper on a contract with the Hatters.

However, the workings of the deal mean that the Luton support are unlikely to see McAtee in action for the club this season with the deal containing a clause that he will be loaned back to Grimsby Town for the 2022/2023 season to enable the striker to get regular first team action and continue his development.

But the signing does raise one big question.

Does the completion of the deal for McAtee mean any Luton interest in Aribim Pepple, something we covered earlier this summer – transfer-deal-is-so-close-its-almost-done – is now history?

    Hi mh, yes I think you will find that he goes to Europe instead.

  • jimbo says:

    he is only trying to get best deal,good luck to him. just read alan’s comment regarding ruddock and hope he has calmed down a bit. always good to hear his inside knowledge ,but try not to get to upset. it’s only football. maybe chill radio might help. sensible move with mc.atee. what a great run the development squad is on. future looks good. COYH.

  • Alan says:

    Jimbo a lot of people behind the scenes work hard getting players fit and keeping them fit, so when comments like yours get made about an injured player it is just disrespectful to the medical staff and the player, whatever your personal opinions are. When a player is playing, then maybe criticism is warranted, but while he is working his socks off, to get fit, along with a few others, the endless criticism is just fruitile.

  • Luton Outlaws says:

    how very sad but totally unsurprising to see jimbo aka James, J in C, Laurie on Outlaws has branched out to another Hatters forum with his attention seeking routine, ignoring the sad act is the best option

  • jimbo says:

    always good to hear other peoples opinions. thats what this forum is about. did’nt understand outlaws comment, but we are all free to comment. ignore or agree its your decision. as you are aware i am not the only critic of ruddock on this site, so lets hope freedom of speech can survive.COYH.

  • Alan says:

    Accept its opinions, but as I said don’t see the point of criticism of an (any) injured player…maybe you practice what you preach and “chill out as it is only football”….

  • jimbo says:

    always ready to chill out. i respect your opinions, but we all have differing opinions, thats why i like this forum. look forward to your next inside information, always interesting. not very keen on chill radio, makes me fall to sleep. COYH.
