Luton coach tips James Justin for England place

James Justin is set to join Leicester City after working closely with Iñigo Idiakez at former club Luton Town.

Luton Town first team coach Iñigo Idiakez has tipped incoming Leicester defender James Justin to become England’s first choice right-back.

Idiakez has coached Justin closely since manager Nathan Jones left Luton last season and believes the 21-year-old has all the qualities required on and off the pitch.

“He has power, speed, technique and a good ability to beat people,” Idiakez told FoxesHub. “He reads the game well and has the potential to be the England right-back in the coming years.

“As a person, he’s a quiet and hard working lad. He has been an example for all the years he has been in the [Luton] academy as a young player. He is really respectful and always has good manners towards everyone.

“Leicester have done really, really well.”

Justin is capable of playing at both right-back and left-back due to his comfort with both feet. He is comfortable in both defence and attack, and is expected to push Ricardo Pereira for a place in the starting eleven.

The youngster completed a medical at Belvoir Drive on Wednesday (June 26) and Leicester are expected to confirm his arrival in the coming days.
