Scunthorpe United and Shrewsbury Town have had bids rejected for Luton Town’s Pelly Ruddock according to a report from journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The 23-year-old midfielder, who can also play in defence, has been a key player for the Hatters ever since he signed for them in 2014 and he is no stranger to having teams interested in him. Over the last few years many teams from across the EFL have made offers to sign him but Luton have been able to hold form and keep hold of him. That has paid off because he has been playing well again this season, making 29 appearances as they sit on the summit of Sky Bet League Two.
But as the transfer deadline comes closer and closer, two teams from Sky Bet League One have made offers for Ruddock. Scunthorpe are currently in the play-off positions before after falling short in the end of season lottery last season, they will be looking to break into the top two. Shrewsbury are in a similar position as they have recently dropped out of the top two and are looking for anyway to get back into the automatic promotion spots. Both have had the same solution and that is to try and add Ruddock to their midfield.
But once again Luton are looking to hold form and keep hold of Ruddock. They have rejected these bids and it appears that they will be doing their best make sure that he remains a Hatter at the end of today. But both Scunthorpe and Shrewsbury may come back with improved bids later in the day to try and tempt Luton to cash in.
