Searching for any transfer speculation relating to Luton Town, I’ve stumbled across a piece of tittle-tattle mentioning another striker.
According to the Football League World, Luton Town are among a gaggle of Championship clubs who are showing interest in the Ipswich Town striker, Tyreece Simpson.
Having already secured the services of Cauley Woodrow, earlier in the week – luton-confirm-second-summer-signing-is-a-done-deal – are we to believe that Luton are looking to further bolster their attacking department?
Simpson, just 20-years-of-age, has only made 7 appearances for Ipswich and spent much of last season on loan at Swindon Town where he made 30 appearances hitting the net 11 times.
As for the other clubs said to be interested look no further than Huddersfield Town and Middlesbrough.
Our referenced source suggests that Simpson has told Ipswich Town he wishes to leave and, as for a possible fee, the sum of £250,000 is mentioned.
So, sat here in the editorial chair, what do I make of this piece of speculation?
Initially, my thoughts are to dismiss it, especially with the Hatters having brought in Cauley Woodrow but nothing would surprise me in this game, indeed, with Nathan Jones revamping the squad for a second summer on the bounce, could we be set for a big surprise departure that could shock the support?
I’ll endeavour to keep my ear to the ground and see what other whispers I can uncover.
