Luton boss Edwards delighted with Lokonga, Kabore impact

Luton Town boss Rob Edwards has been hugely impressed with two of his on-loan players.

The Premier League minnows have been relying on loan and free agent moves to bolster their squad this summer.

Edwards singled out Arsenal's Albert Sambi Lokonga and Manchester City's Issa Kabore for praise.

Speaking after his team's 1-0 loss to Fulham at the weekend, Edwards stated: “I thought he [Lokonga] was excellent.

"His use of the ball was good, his work-rate was very good as well.

"He's an intelligent footballer and will give us some really nice balance between defensive solidity and then also some really good football as well, so I'm very pleased with him."

He added on Kabore: “There were some moments, his cross for Browny's chances and Locks one as well, so some good little bits in the final third from Issa.

"We know what he's got, he's a real threat with his speed, so I was pleased with a lot of the individual performances to be honest."
