LUTON Town manager Nathan Jones says the Hatters have not made an offer for Swindon Town midfielder Scott Twine but did not rule out doing so later this month.

After a successful loan spell at Newport County, which yielded seven goals and seven assists during the first half of the season, the Exiles reportedly made a bid for Twine before withdrawing it a few days later.

Reporters emerged online last week that suggested Luton would try to beat three of their Championship peers to the signing of Twine by submitting a “decent offer” to Swindon in the coming days.

However, speaking to Luton Today, the Hatters boss stated Luton have not tried to add Twine to their ranks after the signing of former Wigan Athletic man, Kal Naismith.

Asked if there was any truth in the rumours of his club bidding for Town’s 21-year-old, Jones said: "Of course we know of him because we have our eye on every league.

"We probably could tell you what certain players have for breakfast but in terms of an offer, no it is not something we’ve done.

"He is someone else’s player, so we've got to be very careful about speaking about other players anyway.

"He is a young player who we know a lot about, but we have a lot of young players here and that is why we brought Kal in to supplement a lot of young players we have.”

Though Jones confirmed Luton had not made a move for Twine, the Hatters manager did not completely rule out a move for a young player in the final days of the January window.

The 47-year-old kept his cards close to his chest when asked if Luton would go in for any more players this month.

Jones said: "Whether it’s needed at this point, a young player, is yet to be decided.

“If something improves us or something different then that is when we will open up discussions, that is when decisions have to be made.

“We’re not looking to get any more experience, we have good experience in the squad, but we felt in signing Kal, rather than take another young loan that was a relative gamble.”
