Banton will remain with the Saints until the end of the season
Hatters forward Zane Banton has joined Vanarama National League South side St Albans City on loan until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old homegrown product has made four first-team appearances this season, all in the Checkatrade Trophy with starts against Gillingham and West Brom, then as a substitute against Millwall and Swindon.
The move to Clarence Park is a third loan in Non-League football for Banton, having spent time at Evo-Stik League Southern Premier side Biggleswade Town and St Albans’ National League South neighbours Hemel Hempstead Town in the last two seasons.
Boss Nathan Jones said: “Due to a lack of match time lately and to continue his development, it’s important that Zane stays sharp and has a focus to work to.
“We felt that this move to St Albans is a sensible one as he can train with us on a daily basis and we can monitor him easily in games there.”
Good luck in your time as a Saint, Zane!
