Former England international goalkeeper David James could be set for a sensational move into Football League management with Luton Town.

The 45-year-old, who is a Luton Town fan, was in the stands at Kenilworth Road on Boxing Day to witness the 2-0 league defeat to Wycombe Wanderers. James was also a special guest at a club Christmas function and participated in a question and answer session with fans.

While studying for his UEFA A coaching licence, James worked with the Luton Town coaching staff to gain some coaching experience. The former Premier League goalkeeper joined cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters as a player-coach in 2014 but left the club after just 16 matches in charge.

Former Luton Town Manager John Still was sacked by the club in mid December after coming under pressure from supporters after The Hatters recorded 4 straight defeats. Town were one of the pre season favourites for promotion but find themselves sat in mid table.

Youth Team Coach Andy Awford is currently in Caretaker charge of The Hatters but has publically stated that he does not want the job on a permanent basis while Gareth Ainsworth and Chris Wilder have also ruled themselves out of the running.
