Who Is Homeless Hatter Danny Gleeson?
Luton Town have released former Cambridge United right back Danny Gleeson, alerting a posse of BSP clubs. Proven at this level, last season saw his chances limited by injury and competition from on-loan AFC Wimbledon defender Curtis Osanu. The 6′ 3″ lad is already understood to be in discussions with 4 BSP clubs after failing to get a new deal along with striker Danny Crowe and left back Shane Blackett.
The big issues as ever for the Imps would be wages and budget, plus the fact that we already have Paul Robson signed up for another season. David Holdsworth is however mindful of the fact that a big side will pose problems for some of the footballing sides and Danny would certainly provide that. He has been capped 7 times for England C, suggesting Paul Fairclough the non-league guru also has confidence in his ability.
Born a stones throw from the Abbey Stadium Danny came up through the ranks before tasting League football at both Cambridge and Notts County following a free transfer. He then rejoined the U’s on loan before making the deal permanent in 2007, making 110 appearances over 3 seasons as well as receiving his England call-ups. In 2010 Luton signed him for free on a two year deal that saw him become an integral part of the side that tasted defeat in the play-off final against Wimbledon. This season saw one of the don’s fringe players came back to haunt him by keeping him out of the side. Let us hope Janos Kovacs has nothing but good things to say about him should we pursue an interest.
