After it was announced that the Hatters would not be retaining George Moncur, it was always going to be a matter of time before he found a new club.
Yesterday, it was confirmed by, The 72, that Moncur had accepted an offer from newly promoted Hull City and, as a result, will remain a Championship player.
It is always sad when somebody who was well liked by the Hatters support leaves Kenilworth Road and George’s departure is no different.
During his spell with the Hatters, George made 52 league appearances for the club, with his spell with us interrupted by injuries and not being selected by the manager.
It seems strange that Moncur has signed for Hull just days after Reece Burke left the very same side to move to Luton, also on a free transfer.
His departure has, as you would expect, generated a deluge of social media comments wishing him all the best, as those listed below perfectly illustrate.
Good luck champ 🍻

While others have bemoaned the fact Luton did not do more to keep him:
Very best of luck to him.
Bad mistake not renewing his contract. One of our best players last season. Will be missed. You got a good one there Hull.

I'm happy for him, but sad for us.

Here at Vital Luton, we would like to wish George all the best at Hull City, but we have our fingers crossed he does not come back to haunt us, especially with those deadly free kicks.
Luton Will Make How Many Signings This Summer?
