Bell next out of Luton?

There are various rumours that David Bell is being chased by many Championship and even Premiership clubs, which means Bell could be next out.
However, this time around Roy Keane is expected to put in a bid for winger David Bell when the transfer window opens, despite having Carlos Edwards already, who is arguably better than Bell, providing that he can learn to cross the ball more accurately. West Bromwich Albion have also been rumoured to be considering a move for Bell, although Baggies manager Tony Mowbray has quashed rumours of a move. Nevertheless, there will be a number of Championship clubs who may find Bell a useful acquisition, providing that he isn't too expensive for them. On his current form though, not many clubs would want Bell.
A move away from Kenilworth Road may also suit Luton as well, from a financial point of view. With Mike Newell's compensation case still pending, not to mention the possibility of a heavy fine if these charges are upheld. The money from the transfers of Curtis Davies, Kevin Nicholls, Steve Howard, Rowan Vine, Carlos Edwards, Leon Barnett, Kevin Foley and even the small amount from Warren Feeney seems to have disappeared, so the club may have to sell off another player to stay out of financial trouble. We'll have to wait until more becomes clear on the saga to see how possible it is that a transfer will materialise.
