Luton Town swoop for frontman Jason Walker

Luton Town have signed Barrow striker Jason Walker on loan, with the move becoming permanent in January.

The clubs have agreed an undisclosed fee for the 26-year-old, who has signed a deal keeping him at Kenilworth Road until the summer of 2012.

His contract at Holker Street was set to expire in May.

"I hope everyone feels the same way as we do - that it's an excellent signing," Hatters boss Richard Money told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"We now have three frontline strikers, we've waited for weeks to secure this signing.

"He's the one we've wanted ever since Tom Craddock went to Oxford.

"We identified him in the summer, we've finally been able to get him and we think he's going to be a real asset to us going forward."


Walker has already scored 11 times in 18 appearances for Barrow this season, taking his tally for the Bluebirds to 64 in 176 games in all competitions.

The forward joined Barrow in the summer of 2007 after spending six months at Morecambe, where he only made one league start.

Cumbria-born Walker started out as a trainee at Scottish side Dundee but never made a first-team appearance.

In 2004 he signed for Greenock Morton, where he made 22 Scottish Division Two starts, scoring 12 goals.
