Luton Town have attempted to sign Chris Martin and Michael Spillane on a permanent basis.

Both are on loan at Kenilworth Road until the end of the season and the Hatters had hoped to tie up a deal to keep them at the club for longer.

However, the approach has been knocked back by Norwich City.

Luton Town director Antony Brown said: “We held talks with Norwich. We actually tabled two separate offers for both of them and both of them were rejected.

On the potential of signing them in the future, he continued: “We are always looking for good players and they are two good players. They are always on the radar, but whether it happens with the new management remains to be seen.”
