The Reds boss has confirmed Drury is part of his plans for the 2014-15 campaign, but is well aware a clause in the former Hatters’ midfielder contract could see him move back to Kenilworth Road.

After Town chief John Still confirmed to the News/Gazette that Luton would be making another bid for Drury, Gregory told the Crawley News: “We had the offer from Luton for the player but we haven’t heard anything since that was turned down.

”He does have a release clause in his contract and if an offer triggered that we would have no option but to allow the player to talk to the other club.

“We aren’t expecting another offer. I hope we don’t get one, but we certainly won’t be accepting a penny less than his release clause.

“It’s a compliment to Crawley Town that other clubs might want our players, but we will just have to fight hard to keep them.”
