Luton’s ‘Mr Versatile’ Jordan Clark is happy to play wherever he is asked if it means keeping his place in the Town first team.

The 27-year-old moved to Kenilworth Road from Accrington Stanley in the summer primarily as winger following a spell at the Wham Stadium that saw him ranked fifth in League One for the number of chances created last term.

In recent weeks, Clark has found himself used as a left winger, right wing-back, plus a right back, while on Saturday against Swansea City, he was moved over to left wing-back for the first time in his fledgling Luton career.

He then dropped into a left back role in the second half of Tuesday night's 2-0 win over Coventry, as on his switches in position, Clark said: “Before I signed, when I met the manager, he was on about me playing in a few positions, but I seem to get further and further back now.

“I know he mentioned about me playing in goal, but I think I could do a job there as well!

“Wherever he wants me to play, I’ll play and give it my all for the team, that’s the main thing.

“I think I’ve played right wing-back a few times in my career but I don’t mind, as long I’m on the teamsheet I’ll play anywhere.”

Town boss Nathan Jones recently declared that Clark was one the club’s best ever acquisitions in recent years, saying: “As a right back, a right wing-back, midfield player, left winger, he does a job for us, but he’s just a joy to have around, one of our best signings for a long time.”

On seeing those comments, Clark himself continued: “It’s always nice to get compliments, but I never get too high and never get too low.

“I just do my work on the training ground and try my best for the team on a Saturday and Tuesday night, so that’s the only thing I can do.”
