Luton Town supervisor Nathan Jones believes a Premier League transfer may come too quickly for Elijah Adebayo amid reported curiosity from Newcastle United, talking to Luton Today. 

It’s been fairly the rise for Adebayo. 

Less than 12 months in the past, the 6ft 4ins targetman was enjoying for Walsall within the fourth-tier.

One yr on, he has bullied and battered his means onto the radar of the so-called ‘richest football club on planet earth’.

According to The Chronicle, Newcastle watched Adebayo in motion earlier than Christmas.

The London-born 24-year-old, who began his profession at Fulham, has taken to the Championship just like the proverbial duck to water. He’s scored 10 instances in 19 begins this season for a mid-table membership. 

But Jones feels Adebayo has rather a lot to be taught earlier than could make his mark within the top-flight. 

Would Newcastle be the flawed transfer for Elijah Adebayo?

“The worst thing that can happen is if he rushes the decision or makes a kneejerk one,” says Jones, who returned to Luton for a second spell after a disastrous stint at Stoke City. 

“He’s only a year into his proper Championship career. He needs more time and time and goals and learning will only do him good.” 

Luton paid simply £250,000 for Adebayo. It’s honest to say he would price much more lately.

How a lot would Adebayo price?

“If anyone wants to come in for Elijah then we have a valuation which is extremely strong,” Jones provides. “So it would only need to be serious bidders.”

“But we don’t anticipate Elijah going on this window simply because it doesn’t make sense for us. 

“I’m unsure it is going to make sense for Elijah to leap this early with out having the actual instruments behind him to go and influence the following stage. 

“We don’t simply need to promote him to the Premier League.

“We want him to one) go to the right club, and two) go to a club where is ready to really impact and doesn’t come off the bench for five minutes, play for their 23s and end up going on loan to a Championship club that is apparently better than ours.” 

Newcastle signed Chris Wood from relegation-rivals Burnley in a £25 million deal this week.

Jones and co can in all probability breathe a little bit simpler as we speak, then. Especially after the nouveau-riche Magpies broke the financial institution for one more 6ft-something targetman within the Adebayo mould.
