Hatters striker James Collins admitted he was ‘gutted’ to see attacker Kazenga LuaLua leave the club last week.

The flying winger, who had become a real fans favourite at Kenilworth Road during his brief stint in Bedfordshire, had been offered a deal to remain with Town, but turned it down after failing to agree terms.

LuaLua had formed a good partnership upfront with Collins in the latter stages of the campaign, setting up some vital goals for Town’s top scorer.

Speaking about his departure, Collins said: “He was a great lad, I got on really well with Kaz and he was popular in the dressing room.

“He’s decided not to renew his contract, which, I don’t know the details of it, but that’s down to him and I’m gutted to see him go.

"As one, he was a great player and two, he was a lovely fella, but I wish Kaz all the best."
