UNCONFIRMED reports from Luton indicate that the Hatters have offered an initial 325K for Town striker Michael Reddy, rising to 400K on appearances. We will find out tomorrow whether the offer is genuinie and has been accepted, although Town have consistently denied that the Irishman is for sale.

Whether this is a genuine offer and Luton will raise their bid on the final day of January and try to persuade Grimsby to cash in on their best player - and risk not winning promotion to League One - is the big question.

Chairman John Fenty denied that Reddy would be leaving Grimsby at last month's AGM, and manager Russell Slade as recently as today emphatically stated that Reddy would be going nowhere.
