As the weekend approaches, much of the early morning transfer speculation relates to two players leaving Luton Town.

According to The 72, Admiral Muskwe is set to step on to the tried and trusted road that sees deals between Luton Town and Barnsley becoming commonplace.

Muskwe, who joined the Hatters from Leicester City, in July 2021 for an undisclosed fee, has made 22 league appearances for Luton Town, but failed to score a goal.

Last season he spent time, on loan, at Fleetwood Town. With Muskwe having little impact in the Championship last season, it is hard to see him forcing his way into the Premier League squad and a move to the League One side, may well be what he needs to prevent his career from stagnating.

 

The other piece of speculation uncovered, infers that Barnsley, as we expected after his loan spell at Oakwell last season, has, according to The Real EFL commenced talks with Harry Isted about putting pen-to-paper on a permanent deal. However, our source also suggests that any talks with Barnsley could open up a path that could see several other clubs express an interest in the 26-year-old keeper who many Luton fans feel unlucky to not be offered a contract by Luton Town

Indeed, a recent poll where we asked the question:

Have Luton Town Made A Mistake in Releasing Harry Isted?

Of the plethora of votes lodged, 67% went for the YES option.

 

Luton – Linked With Scottish International Midfielder

During the last few hours another piece of transfer speculation has appeared relating to Luton Town bringing in fresh faces.

According to several sources, including – Team Talk – are promoting the possibility of the Hatters signing the experienced Crystal Palace midfielder, James McArthur.

McArthur, who has been at Selhurst Park for nine years, is out of contract and is available on a free transfer after the South London club decided not to offer the player a new deal.

With plenty of Premier League experience, it is no surprise that Luton Town are not the only club wanting his services with Sheffield United also being mentioned as a possible destination.

However, with the Scottish international being 35-years-of-age, you have to question the longevity of any such deal.

While appreciating his experience could be crucial in our first season back, you have to wonder whether he’d be up to the long slog of a Premier League season.

Plus, there’s also the concerns that he may not be willing to accept Luton’s pay structure.

Nevertheless, it is an interesting piece of speculation and on a scale of a 1 to 10 probability, I’d give it a 4, how about you?

Please feel free to have your say on the possibility of James McArthur becoming a Hatter in the comment facility beneath this article.
