Luton Town manager John Still has said former England striker Andy Johnson is likely to join the League Two side, should he decide to carry on playing.

Ex-Everton, Fulham and QPR man Johnson, 33, left Crystal Palace earlier this month at the end of a short-term deal.

"He's still in a situation where he's not 100% sure what he wants to do," Still told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"By and large, if he plays, he'll play here. I think he just wants to make sure he can be comfortable playing."

Johnson made just one substitute appearance, in the League Cup, after signing for Palace in September.

He has 149 goals from 476 games in a career that started at Birmingham City, and has also made eight appearances for England.

But he was hampered by knee and ankle injuries during his time at QPR, who he left in the summer.

"He has no problems at all. It's whether he wants to continue playing. It's with him," added Still, whose side are fourth in League Two.

"Andrew Johnson was not in the group of players we were looking at originally. It came about because of his situation.

"I don't want to badger Andrew. When he's ready to, he'll decide whether he wants to play."
