Luton Town Linked With Move For EFL Championship Midfielder

With the 2023/2024 season all but over, it could be an interesting summer when it comes to transfer dealings.

There is no doubting that, following our relegation, there will be some comings and goings at Kenilworth Road.

But, having signed a plethora of signings last summer, I’m of the opinion that the majority could stay.

However, in order to engineer a quick return to the Premier League, I can see the Luton Town recruitment team bringing in a few players, especially with the Premier League parachute payments adding some cash to the coffers.

It hasn’t taken long for the transfer speculation to start with the Football League World running an article suggesting that three clubs – Ipswich Town, Fulham and Luton Town – are being linked with a move for the highly-rated Coventry City midfielder, Ben Sheaf.

A fee of £10 million is mentioned as the price Coventry City would ask for their asset but is a move, to Kenilworth Road, something I can see happening?

To put it bluntly, although he is a talented player, the answer has to be NO!

If Sheaf is to leave Coventry then I’d imagine he’d prefer a move to a Premier League club, rather than remain in the EFL Championship, even if our recruitment team could put across a decent case for becoming part of the Luton Town project.

Also, I’m not sure we’d be prepared to break our transfer record for Sheaf, it could also open a can of worms salary wise.

Indeed, if pushed, out of the three teams mentioned in our referenced article, I’d suggest Fulham are in the prime position, how about you?

    I’m not giving creadence to this one mh 2 defensive midfielders are a must for us before anything else. Could that Columbian be back in the frame ?

  • Neale Bray says:

    £10m for Sheaf is absurd although he is clearly a very good player. One would also query why either he or Coventry have changed their mind over the deal being a goer. Why didn’t he want a bash at the Prem with us? I would be amazed if a Championship club paid that reported fee for him but it’s feasible that a Prem club would be willing to pay over the odds. We do seem to get tunnel vision and obsessed about certain players and I’d rather us not make an even more expensive mistake than Giles, a gifted player without the mental resilience and confidence to step up a level; he isn’t even regularly getting into the Hull starting line up.

    Regardless of whether Ben Sheaf is a good investment or not, we are going to have to use those parachute payments to good effect. In my opinion that is going to mean spending at higher levels that we have seen before if we want to return and stay in the premier league. And I trust the club to do that sensibly and efficiently as they have in the past. I would not be surprised if our record signing quadrupled on one or two players. I don’t think any other club could have done better this year with our resources, so with our new ground funds already in the bank, our level of player investment is the only thing that needs to change.
