The Town keeper last night told the EADT that despite claims in the south-west that Pilgrims boss Paul Sturrock has tried for a second time to land him on loan, as far as he was concerned he was not prepared to join the Home Park club.

Reports from London yesterday suggested Luton Town were also keen on taking transfer-listed Marshall and he admitted that might be a more welcome option although ideally he did not want to drop into the Second Division.

He said: "Just over a year ago I was playing in the Premiership and last season in Division One. I know I'm good enough to carry on playing at least that level and am looking to stay in Division One or join a Premier club.

"As for Luton, because of its relative locality, it might be more likely."

Argyle boss Sturrock may yet land another Town player even if he fails with Marshall. The Albion boss was at Aldershot to watch the Town reserves play Chelsea and even though they lost 4-0 he may make a move for one of Town's promising young defenders, Aidan Collins, Gerard Nash or Chris Hogg.
