Muskwe completes loan move to League One side Fleetwood

Admiral Muskwe

Warriors forward Admiral Muskwe has joined English League One side Fleetwood Town on loan for the remainder of the season after struggling to get regular game time at EFL Championship side Luton Town.

The 24-year-old Zimbabwe international joined Luton Town in July 2021 from Leicester City.

He made 23 appearances for the EFL Championship games last term, scoring two goals, both coming in cup competitions.

Muskwe has featured three times for Town this campaign, starting the recent 2-0 win at Swansea City, while was back on the bench for the 1-1 draw with Sheffield United, although wasn’t in the squad as Luton triumphed 2-1 against Cardiff City on Tuesday night.

Now Luton Town have decided to send him on loan with hopes that he will get regular game time which would be good for his development.

Luton boss Nathan Jones said he hopes the loan move will see Muskwe blossoming in a centre-forward role.

Muskwe has been used in a wide area for the majority of those appearances, barring the 2-0 win at Swansea City recently, when he began alongside Elijah Adebayo up top.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Jones said: “We love him and he’s done well this season, especially at Swansea where he played a big part in our win.

“But we have to be fair to our young players in terms of the amount of game time they’re going to get as part of our squad, versus the opportunity to go out and play regularly at a good club.

“Ade’s time here so far has been a bit disjointed with him picking up an injury a month into last season, and the fact we brought him in as a wide attacker, but as we’ve evolved over the last year, we haven’t often played with one.

“It’s important to maintain the development and progression of a player, and there were a number of clubs interested in taking Ade.

“We felt that Fleetwood would be the best option so that he can join up with Carlos Mendes Gomes (who also joined Fleetwood Town), play as a centre-forward and then come back to us not only as a more experienced player but also having developed a partnership with another of our squad that can only be beneficial for Luton Town in the future.”
