Luton have confirmed boss Nathan Jones has been allowed to talk to Championship side Stoke City over the managerial vacancy at the bet365 Stadium.

The Town chief, who signed a four year deal in January 2018, completed his three year anniversary in charge at Kenilworth Road on Sunday, after a goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup third round.

However, with the Potters sacking Gary Rowett on Monday, Jones' odds have been slashed to as low as 1/16 and a statement on the Hatters' official website said: "We can confirm that we have granted permission to Stoke City to speak to Nathan Jones over their managerial vacancy.

"We will update supporters on any further developments in due course."
