The Hatters are believed to be closing in on a permanent deal to sign Lloyd Jones from Premier League Liverpool to bolster their back-line, and on any potential incomings, Stacey said: “I’ll be on the sofa watching transfer deadline day, we’re fans just as much as anyone else.

“I’ve not heard anything myself, I’ve heard just as much as anyone else.

“But we’ve had a few injuries in defence and we’ll welcome anyone who will come in and strengthen the squad.”

Boss Nathan Jones admitted he is in talks with Jones, a 22-year-old, who has played for Swindon in League One last season, especially after seeing Johnny Mullins go off injured in last night’s 3-2 defeat to Wycombe.

He added: “He’s been struggling with his back which affects his hamstrings a little bit.

“I think if we had a bit more depth we might not have played him, but we didn’t and we’ve paid the price really as it looks like he’s struggling a little bit.”
