Luton defender Frankie Musonda remains confident he can still cut it at Kenilworth Road after moving to St Albans for his second loan spell recently.
The 22-year-old has been with the Hatters since the age of nine, playing in the same youth team as James Justin that won the Aarau Masters international tournament back in 2009.
He penned his first professional contract at Town in November 2015, making his debut as a substitute at Mansfield the following January.
Since then though, he has been restricted to just 14 appearances in total, with only two more substitute cameos in the Football League, his last in May 2016, with all nine of his starts in the Checkatrade Trophy.
With his contract at Kenilworth Road believed to be up at the end of the year, Musonda still hopes he play a part in Town’s future, saying: “I feel like I can play at a higher level, but playing men’s football is what I need to keep myself developing in the game.
“With the gaffer here (at Luton), his style of play is different to styles of play we’ve had with other managers, which is good for me, because it means I have had and am getting a variety of coaching.”
