Luton have taken their total signings in the last 24 hours to 11 with the capture of Michael Spillane, Josh Klein-Davies and Kevin Watson.

Spillane and Klein-Davies, both 19, have joined on loan from Norwich and Bristol Rovers respectively.

Former Colchester midfielder Watson, 34, has arrived at Kenilworth Road on a free transfer.

Meanwhile, defender Lewis Emanuel and midfielder Keith Keane have signed new contracts with the club.

On Friday morning Luton confirmed the Football League had approved the signings of Kevin Nicholls from Preston, Claude Gnakpa , who was formerly with Peterborough, George Pilkington from Port Vale and Asa Hall from Birmingham.

I've said to the players that I'm not bothered about Rotherham and Bournemouth, if we go about our jobs with the right attitude it is down to us

Luton manager Mick Harford

Rossi Jarvis, who previously played for Norwich, Ian Roper from Walsall, Chris Martin on loan from Norwich, and Tristan Plummer on loan from Bristol City were also given permission to join the club.

Luton manager Mick Harford told BBC Three Counties Radio: "Clubs are sympathetic to our cause and I'm grateful to the likes of [Norwich manager] Glenn Roeder and [Bristol City boss] Gary Johnson."

Luton will start the season on minus 30 points but Harford has played down the significance of the 17 point deductions for both Rotherham and Bournemouth.

"I've said to the players that I'm not bothered about Rotherham and Bournemouth, if we go about our jobs with the right attitude it is down to us.

"Obviously they are our nearest opponents, we are 13 points behind them, but we are just concerned about how we approach the season."
