Luton Linked With Goalkeeper Signing

Although, to be brutally honest, I’m not expecting Luton Town to bring in several players this transfer window, one addition would be nice.

But in a window where speculation so far, relating to Luton Town, is a little sparse, it is good to see the club get a mention, with regards to one player, today.

Lurking in several news sources, including The 72.co.uk is that old chestnut relating to the Hatters being interested in signing a goalkeeper we are all familiar with, Christian Walton.

As you may recall, Walton spent time on loan at Kenilworth Road, back in the 2016/2017 season, before leaving.

Since then, although on the books of Brighton and Hove Albion, Walton has spent loan spells at – Southend, Wigan and Blackburn Rovers and is currently on loan at Ipswich Town.

And, according to our referenced source, it is Ipswich Town who are our rivals to sign Walton on a permanent basis.

But, reading between the lines there could be a big spanner in the works with it being reported that Walton is on a cool £13,000 a week salary.

Now I have no idea what the salary range is among the Luton squad, but I doubt if there are few, if any, who are raking in £13,000 a week.

Also, if Luton Town really are in the race to sign the 26-year-old what would it mean regarding the immediate futures of Simon Sluga and James Shea?

Now I may be wrong but, personally, I would be very doubtful if this deal is to be done and dusted, but what are your opinion on the reported pursuit of Christian Walton?

    Hi mh, it’s my belief that this keeps cropping up because of the uncertainty surrounding sluga. Will he stay or be sold.. With only a 1 yr option holding him here. Is Walton better than sluga or shea who was my mom yesterday I don’t think so. Is he worth 13 grand a week no. But I guess we will have to wait an see.

  • Chris winter says:

    With that option it could be in the summer.

  • Brian Wheeler says:

    Do we need another our two are doing great

  • Andrew says:

    Not too sure where we need to improve at the moment maybe on the wing backs but not in the goal keeper department so Walton is not someone we need just yet , unless sluga does leave . Coyh
