James Justin has indicated that he has no plans to leave Luton Town this summer, telling Hatters News that he is loving life at the Championship newcomers.

The Mail reported on Wednesday that Aston Villa and Leicester City are keen to sign the 21-year-old left-back, who is valued at £5 million with just 12 months remaining on his contract at Kenilworth Road.

Stoke City are also reported to be keen with former Luton boss Nathan Jones currently in charge at the Bet365 Stadium.


But after producing nine assists as Luton stormed to the League One title in May, Justin has given little indication that he is planning to leave the club over the next few months.

“We’ll see what happens. As long as the club keeps its core of players, who know what we can do next year,” Justin said.

“When you play in the system that we play in, the way we try and play every week, ball on the floor and just passing the ball about and creating chances, who wouldn’t want to be in a team like that?”

Justin, who’s stand out performances at left-back saw him named in the official League One Player of the Year, might be better off proving himself in the Championship and honing his trade further before making the move away from Luton.

If he impresses, there will be no shortage of interest in a player who will be available for free in 2020.
