Sources: Luton Town have strong interest in Jon Brady

Luton Town have a strong interest in Northampton Town boss Jon Brady, sources have told Football Insider.

The Championship club are stepping up their managerial search after losing Nathan Jones to Southampton last week.

Brady, 47, is believed to be on the radar of the Hatters hierarchy following Northampton’s excellent start to the campaign.

The League Two outfit are third in the division on 35 points and are well placed to challenge for promotion to League One.

Brady has a growing reputation after 20 months in charge of Northampton, initially on a caretaker basis.

The former Brackley Town manager joined the club’s academy coaching staff in 2016 before working his way up to the first team.

The Australian guided the Cobblers to a fourth-place finish last term before they lost to Mansfield Town in the play-offs.

Northampton are now occupy the final automatic promotion place in League Two, seven points off league leaders Leyton Orient.

Luton Town are 10th in the Championship, just one point behind the play-off places but they have played a game more than Millwall who are sixth.

Club legend Mick Hartford is interim charge following Jones’ departure and guided them to a 1-1 draw with Rotherham United on Saturday (12 November).

Jones took first-team coaches Chris Cohen and Alan Sheehan with him to Southampton so there will likely be scope for the new manager to bring in his own staff.

The Hatters now have just less than a month off due to the World Cup and return to action against Michael Carrick’s Middlesbrough on 10 December.

In other news, Tottenham expect to complete a big-name sale and a £30million deal is now in place.
