June is only just upon us but already Luton Town FC have swung into action when it comes to revamping their squad.
The dust may only just have settled on the 2020/2021 season, but the Hatters have been very swift in securing their first two transfer targets.
Hot on the heels of signing Fred Onyedinma, Luton have persuaded the out-of-contract Hull City defender, Reece Burke, to sign for the club.
The speed of the deals and the way the club has been sold to the individuals has certainly impressed the Hatters support, as these two posts perfectly illustrate:
Good to see we are getting these signings over the line early. Shows that NJ and the board deffo planned this as soon as we hit the 50 point mark. Love it you!

Another young, hungry player in early who has been sold the vision by our board, coaching staff and manager. What a team, what a club! 💘 #COYH

Solid signing, showing the ambition of #teamslikeluton

But, as I have always said, the acid test when it comes to a new signing, is the feedback we uncover from the supporters of the club we have just acquired from him.
And visiting one Hull City social media site, you get the feeling there is a little bit of angst / anger in the air, as these posts show:
Shows how much the owners care when Luton town are offering him a better contract than us, all the best Reece

A shame, at 24 our longest standing first teamer who would only get better, arguably leaving for a competitor. Lets see who comes in.

The fact we offered him new terms even if on less money to try and keep him says we wanted him to stay, so to lose out to Luton gives a slightly worrisome outlook

What's East Yorkshire & the 2017 city of culture doing losing players to #teamslikeluton ?

Teams like Luton!
You cheeky so and so’s!
Looks like we will have to remember that insult when we encounter Hull City this coming season.
