Potts signs for Luton Town

Potts2Former Hammer Danny Potts has signed a two year contract with Luton Town after being released by West Ham yesterday.
On joining the Hatters, Potts said “I’m over the moon to have signed for Luton Town. I can’t wait to crack on. Promotion is the key for me, I want success”.
On making the move from The Hammers Potts said “West Ham’s a big Club, but so is Luton and they want to succeed so in that respect the two clubs are no different. They have great fan bases, and coming into the setup at Luton, will be good for me and hopefully we’ll push on and get up the leagues”
On his latest signing, manager John Still said of Potts “He’s young man, a young player who’s reasonably experienced. He’s played in the Premier League, he’s played lower league – a left sided defender who can play left back and centre half – he’ll be a good addition to our squad.” Potts becomes another in a list of players signing from West Ham including Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu and Elliott Lee on loan last season.
The manager added “He’s always been a player that we were interested in if it became possible, and when you look at the other players we’ve taken from West Ham, and other local teams, it gives us a good opportunity to look and we’ve been looking at Dan for some time. He knows how to defend, he’s a good talker, a good organiser so although he’s only 21, he’s got experience”.

  1. Good – I’m glad he wasn’t cut loose for long, as the lad showed a good deal of potential given his limited opportunities.

  2. Agreed,slowly but surely he’ll fight his way upwards

  3. Lucky Luton you have a good one at the right price I hope we get some good freebies to
    Go Pottsy make us proud and I am proud of your dad it must have been hard to let you go and I am sure he could have done something to keep you,
    BFS could learn a lot about club comes first,and dumped Nolan,O,Brien and Jarvis along time ago to the benefit of our club

  4. Think it will benefit Potts to drop down,get some experience then perhaps he can move back up through the leagues.Good Luck Dan!!
