Luton Town midfielder Joe Morrell is ‘set to quit’ the club this summer, to pursue first-team opportunities elsewhere, reports The Sun on Sunday (30.05.21, pg. 59).
Morrell, 24, made just 10 Championship appearances for Luton Town in the season just gone.
The Welsh international only joined Luton Town last summer, signing on a free from Bristol City after several seasons spent out on loan.
Now though, Alan Nixon writes that the midfielder is ‘set to quit’ Kenilworth Road, having played more minutes for the Welsh national team than the Hatters this season – Nixon goes on to write how he’s not expected to be named in Wales’ Euro squad later today.
Nathan Jones’ side though finished the Championship season with a reputable 12th-place, signing off on a run of one defeat in their final seven games.
With Jones returning to the helm, few knew what to expect from Luton Town in the season just gone and even fewer would’ve expected them to go the entire season without ever looking in trouble.
They maintained a comfortable mid-table position throughout and that bodes well looking ahead, though Jones will know that with each transfer window, business needs to be spot on to keep his side compeitive.
Morrell hasn’t really been given the chance to shine at Luton Town. Though his services will give Jones undoubted depth in the midfield and so they could look to keep hold of him for now.
But Morrell seemingly has his heart set on a move away now – there’s no suitors mentioned as of yet but expect there to be plenty looking at the Welshman.
