Luton have signed Portsmouth striker Callum Reynolds on loan until January.The Luton-born 19-year-old started his career with Rushden and Diamonds before Paul Hart took him to the Premier League South Coast side. Manager Mick Harford told BBC Three Counties Radio: "He came to train with us for two or three weeks at Christmas and he made a big impression on me." Reynolds made his debut for the Hatters in Saturday's friendly against a Peterborough XI. Meanwhile, Harford is set to meet with striker Drew Talbot to see if he can persuade him to stay at Kenilworth Road. He said: "Drew is Luton through and through, he wants to stay here and be part of what we are trying to do but there is a difficulty with his contract." Talbot signed for Luton in January 2007 from Sheffield Wednesday, and scored on his home league debut against his old club. The 23-year-old only made nine appearances for the Hatters last season before going on loan to Chesterfield. Harford may have to negotiate a cheaper deal for the player in order to keep him at the Blue Square Premier club.
