Preston striker Louis Moult is out of action with injury at the moment, but that isn’t stopping transfer rumours about him.

Moult, 26, only joined North End last January, but his time at Deepdale hasn’t always gone to plan.

Having hit 50 goals in 98 games for Motherwell, fans had every right to be excited about his arrival at Deepdale.

However, Moult struggled to make an impression last season, but he has at least shown promise this term.

Moult has grabbed four Championship goals in 18 appearances, mostly appearing as a super sub under Alex Neil.

North End brought in Jayden Stockley in January, and with Sean Maguire back and Lukas Nmecha still around, Moult may end the season as Preston’s fourth-choice striker.

That appears to be Luton Town’s hope, with The Sun’s Alan Nixon claiming that the Hatters are interested in Moult.

Moult will still have two years left on his deal, so Preston will be under no huge pressure to sell.

It will ultimately come down to whether Moult will get playing time at Deepdale, or whether he’s better off moving on.

Luton are in the box seat for promotion to the Championship, and may see Moult as a major addition.

After an injury lay-off and with Maguire and Stockley in the mix, the next few months will seemingly settle Moult’s Preston future.
