The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FOURTH ROUND -

LU­TON Town fought off com­pe­ti­tion to se­cure Joe Pig­ott’s sig­na­ture and boss Nathan Jones be­lieves the sign­ing is a coup for the club.

The 22-year-old striker turned down ri­val of­fers to join the Hat­ters on loan from Charl­ton Ath­letic un­til the end of the sea­son.

“I said I’d like to bring in some­one of Joe’s ilk, but he had a num­ber of of­fers,” ex­plained Jones.

“So it is a bit of a coup for the club.We’re look­ing for play­ers who can take us for­ward, and we be­lieve Joe can do that.”
