LUTON TOWN have signed Northampton Town striker Steve Howard and are set to make further signings before Thursday's 5pm deadline passes.
Joe Kinnear has been looking for a striker 'in the John Fashanu mould' - a description that fits the tall 24-year-old to a tee.
Howard, whose contract with The Cobblers was set to expire at the end of the season, has joined The Hatters for a £50,000 fee but will not be eliigible to take part in this weekend's action after the club failed to beat the 12pm deadline.
Meanwhile, Luton striker Rocky Baptiste has re-joined former club Hayes on loan.
