Luton boss Nathan Jones admits he will be keeping an eye on one West Brom youngster in particular during Tuesday’s EFL Trophy clash.
The Hatters chief intends to use the group stage tie against West Bromwich Albion’s U23s as another opportunity to scout the Baggies youngsters – one of whom was the subject of an enquiry in the summer.
Jones admits he tried to sign one of James Shan’s talented teenagers earlier in the season, only to see that chance disappear when the unnamed individual broke into Tony Pulis’ first team squad.
He said: “We’ve kept an eye on them and enquired about one of them, it would be wrong of me to say any names, but we saw them and then he quickly was involved in the first team.
“So they’ve got a few good youngsters there, it’s always a good gauge for them and always a good gauge for us.
“Because if any of them stand out and can cope at the level we need them to be, then there could be potential there.”
Kane Wilson, Jonathan Leko and Sam Field, who remain involved with the first-team, could be involved at Kenilworth Road.
