Sources: Luton Town and Preston North End race to sign Hull City star Matt Ingram
Luton Town and Preston North End are plotting moves for Hull City goalkeeper Matt Ingram, Football Insider understands.
The 28-year-old ended the season on an emergency loan at the Hatters due to a serious injury to their number one goalkeeper James Shea.
Ingram moved to Kenilworth Road for the final two matches of the season and delayed his honeymoon to play in the Championship play-off semi-finals against Huddersfield Town.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Luton were impressed by Ingram’s commitment and he is on their list of targets as they look to strengthen their goalkeeping options for next season.
Preston are also in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements this summer.
The Lilywhites currently have no goalkeepers on their books with Daniel Iversen returning to Leicester and Connor Ripley being released.

He made 29 appearances for Hull City in the 2021-22 campaign prior to joining Luton Town.
