Luton Town are keeping tabs on Preston North End striker Louis Moult.

The Hatters are currently top of League One and see Moult as an ideal summer signing, according to journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.

Moult, who is 26 years-old, has played 21 games for Preston in all competitions so far this season, scoring five goals. His contract at Deepdale expires in 2021.

The story so far…

He started his career with Stoke City but only ever made one senior appearance for the Potters. He had various loan spells at Bradford City, Accrington Stanley, Mansfield Town and Alfreton Town before joining Northampton Town on a permanent basis in 2012.

Moult struggled to establish himself in the Northampton first-team and left after a just a season to join non-league side Nuneaton Town. He scored 17 goals for the non-league side.

Wrexham then snapped him up and he bagged 16 goals for them in the Conference (now the National League) in his single season there before moving up to Scotland to join Motherwell in 2015.

He has scored 35 goals in 78 games for Motherwell which earned him his move to Preston in January 2018.

Moult has had a well travelled career and would be a useful acquisition for Luton, should they be able to maintain their stunning run of form and gain promotion to the Championship.
