TOWN are open to offers for frontman Pawel Abbott.

Manager Peter Jackson's confirmation comes after the 25-year-old striker's agent claimed a "number of clubs" are interested.

Championship sides Luton, Derby, Colchester and Ipswich have been linked with Abbott, who came close to joining MK Dons last summer.

Jackson, who had talks with an unnamed defender yesterday, is reported to be keen on Luton's Northern Ireland international frontman Warren Feeney, fuelling speculation over a possible swap deal.

Abbott's agent Lee Payne told "We know a number of clubs are looking at Pawel.

"But the situation is with Huddersfield at the moment and we will see what happens."

Jackson repsonded: "There has been no contact from any club as yet, but if the right offer comes along, we would listen."

The development comes 10 days after the former Poland Under 21 player, who has been unable to tie down a regular place and is out of contract at the end of the season, hinted he could push for a move from the Galpharm.

After his double helped Town to a 3-2 home win over Swansea, the former Preston player said: "If I'm not playing, it would be a lie if I said I wanted to stay. I am at an age where I want to be playing as often as possible - not sitting on the bench."

Abbott, pictured left, has five goals this season, and 51 in all for Town.

Should he move, he would have to wait to make a debut for his new club, because he has served just one game of a three-match suspension after his straight red card in the 3-0 New Year's Day defeat at Doncaster.

Jackson reported no further enquiries over goalkeeper Paul Rachubka, who on Friday turned down the chance of joining Peterborough on loan with a view to a permanent deal.

Posh's League II rivals Stockport had also asked about the 25-year-old, and could come back into the equation.

Rachubka trained with Town yesterday and today and is pencilled in for a Reserve run-out in tomorrow's Pontin's Holidays League Central Division clash with Leeds at Elland Road (7.00).

It will be the second string's first match since a 2-0 home defeat by Rotherham in November.
