Town manager John Still has thanked Jayden Stockley for his efforts after the striker returned to parent club Bournemouth on Saturday following the end of his three-month loan spell at Kenilworth Road.

Still has also promised the 21-year-old, who scored three goals in 13 appearances for Luton, that should the Hatters make the play-offs and Bournemouth go up automatically, he will bring him back to train with the club.

Speaking about the impact Stockley made at Kenilworth Road, Still said: “I really liked Jayden Stockley, I thought he did a great job for us.

“He come in at a difficult time for us and done really really well, working extremely hard whenever he had a chance.

“I can’t thank him enough for his assistance and we said to him on Saturday in the dressing room if we were to progress into the play-offs and Bournemouth’s season was over and he wasn’t needed there, then I’ll bring him back here.

‘I’ll bring him back here just to train with us and be a part of us, obviously he won’t be able to play but he showed great attitude when here. He was a loan player but became one of us.”

The striker expressed his gratitude to Luton on his Twitter account on Saturday evening.

He said: “Would like to thank everyone associated with Luton Town, it’s been an honour to represent them. I wish them all the best for the future.”
