The deal could top 1m should they play in Chelsea’s first team.

Luton head of youth Gregg Broughton said: ‘This is an historic deal to see three brothers transferred together.

'Following our loss in the play-offs last season we were told they wished to look at other options.’

Southampton's Wallace trio of Ray, Rodney and Danny all played together at Southamton in the 1980s.

Meanwhile, QPR have upped their bid for Chelsea defender Alex, 29, to 4m as the clubs try to strike a compromise.
