Boucaud has no desire to return to Luton

On-loan Luton midfielder Andre Boucaud has his sights firmly set on winning a deal at League One Notts County after claiming he was never given a chance at Kenilworth Road.

Town paid York City £25,000 for his services last season, but he played only a handful of times, and is on loan to the Magpies until January.

Now a regular two divisions above, the 27-year-old said: “I’ve proved I can play at this level and I want to stay.

“The new gaffer Paul Buckle came in at Luton and didn’t fancy me. He didn’t give me a chance.”

The Trinidad & Tobago international has helped the Magpies surge up the league and doesn’t want to return to the Hatters once his deal is up.

Boucaud said: “I wasn’t in the team, I was training with the youth team, they were going on tours and not taking me.

“It was terrible for me and from what I saw, the only way for me was down.”

No talks on extending the deal have taken place, but Boucaud is hopeful of staying, adding: “I came here on trial and the gaffer gave me an opportunity in the first game against Hartlepool and I thought I took my chance.

“That’s all I am trying to do, work hard, stay in this team and hopefully prove to everyone I can play in this league because I know I can.

“I have always known I could play at a higher level, but it’s getting the opportunity. There are a lot of players in the lower leagues who don’t get the opportunity and fall by the side.

“I’m glad to be here and I don’t ever want to go back to non-league football again.”
