Andre Boucaud was a cut-price bargain according to Gary Brabin and now the Luton boss is just desperate to show off his purchase.
The midfielder signed on transfer deadline day from York City for £25,000 but a combination of the current cold snap and being cuptied has made it a frustrating fortnight at for all concerned.
And yesterday’s postponed Blue Square Bet Premier game at Forest Green Rovers means that the wait for Boucaud’s debut will now stretch to at least the three-week mark.
“When you see some of the money people are paying in this league now, I don’t think it’s a massive sum,” Brabin said of his latest signing.
“There are a lot of teams and some of the so-called lesser teams are paying bigger money for players.
“It’s good business for the club.
He’s a good player and we just want him to come in now, show what he’s capable of and help us achieve our goal.”
The manager added: “Andre has settled in really well. The conditions haven’t been ideal but we are delighted as a coaching staff that we’ve been able to get in what we’ve needed.
"We can see what a good player Andre is. I’m sure he’s enjoying his time here and he’s chomping at the bit to play.”
