LUTON TOWN manager Joe Kinnear is eyeing Southampton goalkeeper Neil Moss as a possible target to his custodial problems.

The Hatters boss has been in talks with the 27-year-old's agent and Saints manager Gordon Strachan over a move for Moss.

Luton have been without cover in the goalkeeping department this season because of a hip injury to Marc Ovendale and has been critical of Carl Emberson's play of late following his blunder in the defeat to Plymouth Argyle last Saturday.

With Alan Combe and Simon Royce both turning down moves to Kenilworth Road after failing to agree to personal terms, Kineear is looking to Moss and a French trialist from Troyes as alternatives.

Moss is currently number two to fellow Saints keeper Paul Jones but with the St. Mary's side agreeing a fee with Scottish Premier League side Hearts for Finland number one Antti Niemi, Moss may consider an offer from the Bedfordshire club.

Kinnear told Luton Online: "We're looking at Neil Moss.

"He played about 15 games in Southampton's first team last season and I've already spoken to Gordon Strachan and the boy's agent."

Meanwhile, Luton have failed with a move for Bradford City's Claus Jorgensen.
