Luton Town striker Andre Gray could be about to seal a move to The Championship, with Brentford closing in on his signature.

The 23-year-old fired the Hatters to promotion from The Conference last season, netting 30 goals and finishing as the league's top-scorer.

Gray was also a target for Blackpool, but newly-promoted Brentford appear to have jumped to the front of the queue.

Meanwhile, Crawley Town have rejected a second offer from Luton for midfielder Andy Drury.

The Hatters are keen to bring the 30-year-old back to Kenilworth Road, but Crawley still see him as part of their plans.

“Their second offer was not much better than the first so we turned it down," Crawley manager John Gregory told The Argus.

"They both fell well short of our valuation of Andy and to be honest even if it was a penny less than the release clause then we wouldn’t have accepted as I don’t want him to go.

“I’m planning to build my team around Andy this season so unless they offer the amount that is in his contract and take it out of our hands then he is going nowhere.”

Luton Town's bid to bring Andy Drury back to the club blocked by Crawley

League One side Crawley Town have blocked an approach from Luton Town for midfielder Andy Drury.

Drury previously spent time at Luton earlier in his career, before he was snapped up by Ipswich Town for a fee of around £150,000.

The Hatters were very interested in bringing the 30-year-old back to Kenilworth Road, but Crawley still see him as a key member of their squad.

"We have rejected Luton's approach because we have absolutely no wish to sell Andy," Crawley Town Chief Executive Michael Dunford said.

"He is an integral part of John Gregory's plans for next season and a very important member of our squad."

Luton have managed to get one deal over the line today however, with Welling United striker Ross Lafayette joining on a two-year deal.

Luton Town have signed Welling United striker Ross Lafayette on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old hit 17 goals in 41 games last season for the Kent club in the Conference.

Lafayette previously played for Hemel Hempstead and Wealdstone before joining Welling.

“Ross is a player we have had on our radar for a number of years, he’s always someone we’ve had in mind," manager John Still told the club's official website.

"Ross has a lot of ingredients which make him an ideal signing. He’s quick, he’s strong and he knows how to score goals.

“Ross knows that he’s got to work his absolute socks off to do well at Luton Town to be a success and I back him 100 per cent to do exactly that.”

Luton Town have completed their first signing since returning to the Football League, with Lowestoft Town right-back Curtley Williams joining on a two-year deal.

The 24-year-old came through the ranks at Ipswich Town before joining the Glenn Hoddle Academy in Spain.

Williams helped Lowestoft to promotion from the Ryman Premier earlier this month.

“We’ve watched Curtley extensively this season and we’ve all been very impressed," manager John Still told the club's official website.

“He is an ambitious man who comes under the ‘young and hungry’ bracket, and one we see having a bright future ahead of him."

Peterborough United midfielder Kane Ferdinand has joined Skrill Premier League leaders Luton Town on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old previously spent time on loan at Northampton Town this season after falling out of favour at London Road.

Hatters boss John Still believes that the former Southend United man will prove to be an astute signing.

“He’s an all-action midfield player who plays a high-energy game and gets all around the pitch,” Still told Luton's website.

"He’s the sort of player I like. He can come up with the odd goal and for him to play 30-odd games in the Championship last season speaks volumes."
