Matt Macey has been brought into Luton Town on loan to provide competition for the keepers they already have according to their manager, Nathan Jones, and he’s ‘buzzing’ about it.
Speaking to the official Luton Town website after the deal was confirmed, Jones said, “We are delighted to announce we’ve signed Matt, which means we’ve brought in two of the best young goalkeepers in the country today.
“He’s picked up real good experience with a massive club at Premier League and Champions League level, as well as in our division with Accrington Stanley.
“He’s come in to provide strong competition for the goalkeepers we’ve already got here, and we are delighted Arsenal have entrusted us to aid his development. We are looking forward to working with him.”
Macey himself, meanwhile, added, “I’m buzzing.
“I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for a long time, to finally get a chance to go and prove myself is brilliant.
“It can be a bit of a bubble at Arsenal and places like that, but I had a taste of it at Accrington and before that I was at Bristol Rovers as a young lad, so I know what League Two is all about.
“As soon as I heard there was interest I was 100 per cent on the way. You don’t get opportunities like this too often, so when you get one you’ve got to go for it straight away, don’t think twice.
“In terms of being a football fan I know how massive this club is and I know that the support is huge from when Luton have come down to play teams that I’ve been at, like Bristol Rovers. I’m really looking forward to it.”
Macey signed for Arsenal in 2013, arriving from Bristol Rovers after a successful trial. Now 22, this loan is the chance for him to really step up after what he will have seen as a poor loan spell with Accrington Stanley last season.
