Luton Fight Off Forest Interest in Justin

Luton Fight Off Forest Interest in Justin

Having already lost Cameron McGeehan to a Championship side, speculation is rife that Nottingham Forest have shown an interest in the young Hatters defender, James Justin.

The 19-year-old sprung to prominence last season to become a mainstay of the Luton Town starting eleven whilst also pushing for a place in the England U19 squad.

But, with Nottingham Forest showing an interest in the player, with a bid of £1 million being mentioned, Nathan Jones has insisted that the versatile defender is better off staying at Kenilworth Road.

Talking about the situation, to the local media, Jones is attributed as having remarked,

'We've had a lot of interest in JJ and the club have received a bid, but he's a young player and we see him developing here.

'JJ, his family and the people that look after him see that the best way to develop would be to have at least one more season here, getting games under his belt while learning his trade."

And as for his recent spell with the U19 squad, Jones further added,

'After he's been away with England it's important we don't over-train JJ too quickly, so we've given him a little bit of down time.

'It's been a mini-break for him really, but he's been around everyone, so it's been good.'

If Luton can hang onto James Justin this summer it will be an achievement in itself.
