However, the 48-year-old has also stated that the Hatters are still far away from completing a deal.

The Athletic reported yesterday that Anderson was closing in on a loan move to Bedfordshire, with Chris Wood’s arrival supposedly allowing the 19-year-old to embark on a temporary departure.

Anderson has chipped in with five goals in six Premier League outings thus far this season, appearing on the first time bench on four occasions too.

Quiz: Can you name which club Luton Town signed these 28 defenders from?

Speaking to Luton Today about the links surrounding Luton’s pursuit of the exciting midfielder, Jones said: “There’s truth in it as we do like him.

“Rather than just be cliched and say nothing, we like him, we think he’s a good player, so do Newcastle. Are we close to signing him? No, no we’re not.”

The verdict

Luton’s continued interest in Anderson just shows how highly the club, and particularly Nathan Jones, rate him as a player.

The young midfielder has thrived in Premier League 2, proving to be a class above at times, and should he arrive at Kenilworth Road, it would be a move that would benefit all that are involved.

Anderson would add creativity, grit and technical ability to Luton’s midfield and would certainly look to establish a strong link with Elijah Adebayo.

The Hatters are yet to add to their squad this month after a strong recruitment drive in the summer.
