Potential stumbling block emerges in Luton Town and West Brom transfer
Reports suggest that a stumbling block has emerged that could cost the Hatters a deal for Alex Palmer.
Luton Town made a bid for West Brom goalkeeper Alex Palmer over the weekend.
Luton’s bid for Palmer has been reported to be in the region of £2.5 million, which West Brom have reportedly accepted.
The deal is said to have stalled on personal temrs, with Luton keen to include relegation clauses in their contracts
Following their promotion to the Premier League, Luton Town have looked heavily towards the EFL in terms of recruitment this summer.
Indeed, the club have made six transfers so far this summer, five of which were playing in either the Championship or League One last season.
For example, Ryan Giles has signed for the club from Wolves after his loan spell at Middlesbrough last campaign, whilst Marvelous Nakamba joined permanently from Aston Villa after his own loan spell at Kenilworth Road.
In further deals, the club have also snapped up Birmingham City’s Tahith Chong, Barnsley’s Mads Andersen and former Rotherham player Chiedozie Ogbene.
Reports over the weekend suggested that yet another player from the EFL was about to make the move to Kenilworth Road, too.
Luton Town make move for Alex Palmer
Indeed, West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Alex Palmer was reportedly the subject of a transfer bid from the newly promoted side.
Journalist Tom Collomosse, who covers Midlands football for Mail Sport, reported that the Baggies had accepted an offer from the Hatters for their keeper.
Reports later in the weekend via talkSPORT suggested that the Premier League side had bid £2.5 million for the Baggies goalkeeper.
Now, though, a potential stumbling block has emerged in the deal, which could see Luton lose out on another goalkeeper target this summer.
