“Every player wants to play as high as they can and test themselves, I’m the same and it would be lovely to do that with Luton.
“I’m not a big headed person, I’m really not. I’m not arrogant, some people might get the wrong perception of me on and off the pitch, but I’m confident in my ability and I believe I can play in the level above.
“I’m sure I can, I know I can. It’s just timing, opportunities, sometimes they don’t work out.
“I went to Rotherham and it didn’t work out, so, I’m looking forward to playing where I am, hopefully we can get promoted and play many games in the league above and then hopefully the league above that.”
