Luton Town are targeting a move for Crawley Town defender David Sesay.

The Hatters see the 20-year-old as an ideal replacement for Jack Stacey and James Justin, according to a report by Football Insider.

Graeme Jones’ side are in the hunt for some reinforcements before the transfer window shuts and are lining up a move for Sesay.

They have so far managed to bring in goalkeeper Simon Sluga, Martin Cranie, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Callum McManaman, Jacob Butterfield and Brendan Galloway but want more acquisitions.

Sesay, who is from London, could be on his way to Kenilworth Road as the Hatters look forward to welcoming Championship football back on Friday night at home to Middlesbrough.

The young defender started his career at Watford and rose up through the youth ranks at Vicarage Road before turning professional in 2016. He never made a senior appearance for the Premier League side and was released last summer.

Sesay consequently joined Crawley on a free transfer and penned a two-year deal with the League Two side. He impressed for them in the last campaign and helped them stay up.

However, the fourth tier outfit could now sell him with him only having a year left on his contract to ensure they get a fee for him.

Sesay would be a shrewd signing by Luton and would give them more options and depth.
