Report: Celtic consider £2million move for Luton defender Jack Stacey

Celtic are reportedly keen on Luton Town defender Jack Stacey this summer.

According to the Sun, the Bhoys are joined by Stoke City in the pursuit of the 23-year-old right-back.

It is understood that both suitors are ready to make enquiries about a £2million move for him.

The report details that Luton want to keep the full-back, but he’s about to enter the final year of his contract with them and Celtic are willing to discuss a potential deal.

Stacey enjoyed a brilliant individual campaign last season, where he helped Luton achieve promotion from League One to the Championship in England.

He is a right-sided flyer that was an ever-present in the team and was a major attacking threat from right-back.

 

Stacey made 50 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring four goals and supplying eight assists in return.

His pace and power is certainly a key feature to his game, while he’s got most traits of a modern day full-back.

TBR’s View:

Celtic need to be on the search for a new right-back following the exit of Mikael Lustig the Luton speed machine looks a brilliant target.

He was excellent in a promotion-winning season last year for Luton and is developing into a great prospect.

Neil Lennon needs to try build an exciting side in his own image and having attack-minded full-backs will help.

Stacey would be a slight gamble at £2million given his lack of experience at a top level, but he’s definitely got potential and may be worth a shot.
