Luton Town striker set for exit, Oxford ready to pounce

Oxford United could be set to boost their ranks by drafting in Luton Town striker Danny Hylton, as revealed by HITC Sport.

Hylton has fallen out of favour at Kenilworth Road in recent weeks, not making the last three squads under caretaker Mick Harford. Whilst James Collins and Elliot Lee have stepped up a level with ease, Hylton has just five goals to his name.

 It has been an injury-hit season for the former Aldershot man, he’s started just ten of their matches this season. It’s a sharp decline from last season where he bagged 21 goals at they stormed to promotion. He got the same tally the year before as they missed out in the play-offs.

He left Oxford United in 2016, turning down a new deal to join Luton. He began his career with Aldershot, moving to Rotherham United where he made little impact.

He’s a controversial figure, an aggressive striker who thrives on winding up defenders and fans as much as half chances and efforts at goal.

Our View

What a signing he’d be for Oxford. If he is available, there’s no doubt a few clubs will be wanting to speak to him about a move. He’s prolific in League Two, but has never proven himself in League One. 

If I were a table-topping League Two club, I’d be checking down the back of the sofa for a few quid because signing this man would guarantee ten goals between now and May, if not more.
