Luton, QPR and Coventry suffer heartbreak as target choses Tynecastle.
Nathan Jones’ side suffered heartbreak at the end of last season as their 2021/22 campaign ended in a devestating loss to Huddersfield during the Play Off semi finals.
Their most recent conquest sees Hibernian goalkeeper Matt Macey join on loan for an undisclosed fee. Macey’s stint at Kenilworth Road will be the second time he has joined the side after playing 13 games for Luton on loan from Arsenal in 2017.
The 6ft 7ins goalkeeper spoke to the Luton website saying: “When i heard there was some interest I was desperate to come back.
“I’m coming back with over 100 games under my belt, big experiences in big games and stmospheres in Scotland, and I feel like I’ve grown as a person and a player from that.”
As Luton prepare for the 2022/23 season, here is the transfer news from Kenilworth Road and their Championship rivals...
