Luton – Striker Linked With Kenilworth Road Move

The transfer merry-go-round, despite the window being open, has yet to really get into full swing.

Speculation, relating to possible deals, involving Luton Town FC has been scarce.

However, yesterday, one piece of tittle-tattle did surface, courtesy of The 72 implying that the Hatters were looking to bring a young striker to the club.

The player in question being 19-year-old Luke Plange.

Plange is currently on the books of the Premier League outfit, Crystal Place.

However, Luton fans may well be aware of his presence, in the Championship, wearing a Derby County shirt.

The reason being that Palace signed Plange in the January transfer window before loaning the player back to Derby County for the remainder of the season.

Our source suggests that the Hatters are looking to sign Plange on a loan deal which opens up that old chestnut regarding the long-term implications of a loan deal and denying our own youngsters of a chance to shine.

During his time with Derby County, Plange made 27 appearances and scored on 4 occasions.

A former Arsenal Academy graduate, is Plange the striker to take us that one step further next season?

Or could he struggle to get a starting place in our current XI when faced with opposition from Adebayo, Jerome and Cornick?

Please feel free to have your say in the comment facility beneath this article.

The speculation relating to Plange means our transfer speculation XI now looks as thus:

Goalkeeper – Matt Ingram / Matt Macey / Will Norris

Defender – Alex Cochrane
Defender – Antonios Papadopoulos

Midfield – Will Vaulks

Striker – Luke Plange

    Hi MH may be a good signing time will tell. Noticed you did not mention Muskwe as a striker do you know something we don’t?

    However far more important is when are we going to sign at least one goalkeeper . Seems one option has gone already. 6ft 7inch seems a good option but do Hibs want too much? If we are really going for the playoffs we need another Sluga.


  • Dave Roberts ( Roby ) says:

    Ingram let in 7 against Fulham & the deciding goal away to Huddersfield was preventeable. dont trust him !

    Also Muskwe has failed to impress ,loan him out & get in a young hungry one as we did with Cornick, Adebayo & others..

    Give Thorpe & Pereira a chance !

    The wages of ex premiership players will be a problem ,even from many championship clubs.
    We do well getting bargains from lower down the Pyramid who wont EXPECT to play every game & modest wages.
    Lansbury is on 9k a week ! a yellow card magnet who constantly upsets refs !

  • Peter Scott says:

    We find it difficult to overcome the NJ favoritism thing – he plays players who would never get in another team and leaves out players like Muskwe that need a run. I think we should mutually cancel Danny Hyltons, Pellys and Dan Potts contracts and let them go as we have far better players in the sqad, and then bring in a couple of new faces. NJ doesnt like loan players but thats what other teams and we need to do. Not a lot of teams in the Champ have brought in new players yet so there will be a mad scramble at the end of the window.

    • Alan says:

      Wait for the backlash, but our points per game percentage last season with pelly in the side was higher than when he was absent….

      • GEOFF CLAYTON says:

        Spot on!!

      • Peter Scott says:

        Pelly was the worse performing Midfielder in the Championship last season on Sofascore – he has to go sometime as wont be playing when he is 50! People always think with their heart and not with their head – our points per game were higher when Berry was in the team too. If we had got to the Prem he would not even be on the books anymore

        • Alan says:

          I’m thinking with my head. It was a comment based fact. I’m not seeing pelly should play every game and I’ve also said in the past that had berry stayed fit he would have started b4 pelly. Pelly worse than Morrell????I get some don’t rate him but he was also carrying an injury for most of last season….so let’s get behind all the squad b4 we pass criticism on this season….

    • GEOFF CLAYTON says:

      How anyone can have a go at NJ is beyond me – without him coming back we may have been back in L2 by now. Also leave Pelly alone.

  • Plange's mum says:

    Plange not Flange!
