[It will be good for him to get some playing time.]

Canadian international goalkeeper Lars Hirschfeld has joined Second
Division Luton Town on loan for a month.

The 24-year-old from Edmonton is currently the No. 3 'keeper at
Tottenham of the Premier League behind No. 1 Kasey Keller and backup
Neil Sullivan.

With Sullivan recently back training after a broken finger, the loan to
move is to give Hirschfeld some playing time.

Luton currently stands eighth in the Second Division with a 14-9-8
record.

Hirschfeld could make his debut for the Hatters on Saturday at home
against Brentford.

"He looks very impressive so I'll see how he shapes up this morning and
I might get him involved," Luton manager Joe Kinnear was quoted on
Luton's official Web site.

"He'd come in for a month with a view to extending it to the end of the
season. I've spoken to (Tottenham manager) Glen Hoddle and gotten the
OK. The downside if we sign him permanently is that you lose him for
international competitions."

Hirschfeld, Canada's No. 1 'keeper, has played 11 times for Canada.

The Canadian becomes Luton's fifth goalkeeper this season. Several
others have had stints on trial with the team.
