The 21-year-old, who joined Luton from Histon in the summer, has extended his stay until February 1, but Town do have an immediate call-back option.

Still said: “I think while he’s playing at the moment we’ll leave it.

“We’ve got an immediate call-back, so Solly (Solomon Taiwo) has come back and Solly played very, very well against Reading and I’m hoping, because he wasn’t good earlier in the season, I’m hoping the problem that he had has solved his mobility problem.

“If he has, then we’ve Kane (Ferdinand), we’ve got Matt Robinson. Andy Parry’s not a million miles away.

“The loan window is still open, if we needed to loan in the next week, when we’ve had a look at the situation, we will.

“We have targets, we’re not going to rush into it, we will wait and see.”
