According to a report from Football Insider, both Luton Town and Preston North End are interested in the signing of Hull City goalkeeper Matt Ingram.

City’s first choice goalkeeper has been Nathan Baxter who joined on loan from Chelsea but given his return to his parent club, you can assume that the Tigers could be keen to keep hold of Ingram for themselves.

Furthermore, the fact the club have triggered a 12 month extension of his contract which was due to expire at the end of June supports this case.

The 28-year-old made 29 appearances for Hull this season so it’s clear he has the ability at this level.

However, he did join Luton on loan at the end of the season on an emergency loan after a serious injury to Hatters’ number one James Shea.

The goalkeeper played two games for Luton at the end of the season and then delayed his own honeymoon to play for them in the play-off semi-finals against Huddersfield.

As a result, Nathan Jones is said to be impressed with his commitment and therefore are keen on him.

Preston, however, are in desperate need of a goalkeeper as it stands since on-loan Daniel Iversen has returned to his parent club Leicester City whilst Connor Ripley has been released leaving the Lilywhites with no goalkeepers currently.

The Verdict:

You can see why Ingram is wanted by multiple sides and Hull have made the right choice to extend his contract to ensure that if he does go this summer, they will have the finances to be able to find a replacement goalkeeper.

Furthermore, if either team want him now they are going to have to pay for him with will lead us to discover if any team actually want him that much.

Both Luton and Preston need goalkeepers and you can understand why Jones would be so keen to keep him on given the commitment he has shown to the side already.

Furthermore, given the fact he did a good job with Luton who have been at the higher end of the table this season suggests where he may favour moving to if he has the choice.
