Date of birth
Brentwood-born Downes joined the Hatters on loan from Ipswich Town on January transfer deadline day until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old has been one of the bright stars of the Championship side’s season so far, having penned a three-year contract at Portman Road soon after turning professional in the summer.
He had made five starts among his 12 appearances – including his full debut when the Tractor Boys won at Kenilworth Road in the Carabao Cup in August – after being handed his first substitute’s appearance by manager Mick McCarthy on the opening day.
Flynn has also won his first England Under-19 caps this term.
