TOWN are today hot in the market for a proven Championship striker.
Manager Peter Jackson confirmed he's made the bid in the wake of Pawel Abbott's £150,000 departure to Swansea City.
Jackson is eager to bring in at least a couple of fresh faces with Abbott joining Town's League I Liberty Stadium rivals and Danny Adams being released from the squad.
The manager would not reveal his striker target, although he has previously been linked with an interest in Luton's Warren Feeney, who was injured after just 22 minutes of Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Barnsley and is facing up to three weeks on the sidelines.
"We have put in a bid for a Championship striker and we are just waiting for feedback on that," said Jackson, who confirmed Nathan Clarke would return to action for the Reserves at home to West Brom on Wednesday (2.00).
"I have some other targets in mind as well and hopefully this next week will be a good one, because I'm desperate to get players in before the transfer window shuts now Pav and Danny have gone."
Jackson added: "Sometimes you just need the one move like Pav's to set off a chain reaction from club to club.
"Swansea were the first club to make us a suitable offer for Pav and the money was to good to turn down, given he could walk away for free in the summer and I couldn't guarantee him a first-team place."
