Luton Town’s glory days are unfortunately long gone by now and they are currently struggling to stay afloat in the Championship. But interestingly enough, it was actually in the 2019/20 transfer window that the Hatters managed to break their previous record with the arrival of Simon Sluga from Hajduk Split for a reported fee of £1.5m.
The goalie’s fee surpassed that of Adam Boyd who kept his £1.3m price tag at the top of the pile since his arrival in 2006/07 from Hartlepool United. It is quite telling that those two transfers, top one and two respectively, are the only two to eclipse the one million mark with the third biggest signing being that of Phil Gray from Fortuna Sittard for £810,000 in 1997/98.
Still, the situation is far more impressive when it comes to Luton Town’s sales as James Justin’s 2019/20 move to Leicester City for a reported fee of £6m takes the cake as the most expensive and most lucrative business the club has ever done in their history.
Jack Stacey was also sold to Bournemouth in the same campaign for a bit over £4m and the young right-back is currently their third biggest sale, only behind Justin and Curtis Davies who’s in second place.
Needless to say, 2019/20 has been quite something for the Hatters as the club has managed to break both their incoming and outgoing transfer records. For that reason, it doesn’t surprise that Sluga’s arrival from Croatia was quite a big thing for Luton Town as it meant that Boyd’s 2006/07 record would finally be surpassed.
A similar thing can be said for the departures and both Justin and Stacey left the club having made the Hatters quite a bit of money with their price tags in the process as well. Of course, we can’t fail to mention that famous 2005 generation with the likes of Kevin Nicholls, Marlon Beresford or Stephen Robinson.
And then there are the players of the years gone by with Malcolm Macdonald, Brian Stein for his two stints at the club and of course, the late Radimir Antic, all of whom made a big impact on the club as a whole and can certainly be labelled as successful and famous transfers at Luton Town.
