Crystal Palace are in the race to sign Luton Town defender James Justin, according to claims from Football Insider

The promising full-back impressed for his side in League One this season, subsequently earning himself a place in the division’s Team of the Year. 

Luton secured promotion to the Championship after a consistent campaign in the third tier of English football, but it seems they are still at risk of losing key players, with Justin courted by Premier League clubs such as Palace.

The Eagles are understood to have made an approach over a possible deal for the 21-year-old, who can play either as a left-back or as a right-back.

Justin has only one year remaining on his current contract at Luton, prompting speculation that the club could look to cash in on their young star to avoid losing him for free next summer. 

Palace appear to be in the hunt, while Aston Villa have reportedly made a £7.5 million bid. Southampton, Leicester City and Fulham are all also noted as potential suitors for the defender.
