Sources: Top Luton star agrees new long-term contract as Hatters look to tie down number of key men

Amarii Bell Luton Town

Luton Town defender Amari’i Bell has agreed a new deal with the Premier League new boys, TEAMtalk understands.

Bell, 29, was a virtual ever-present for Luton last season and played a key role in their promotion to the Premier League from the Championship.

The attack-minded left-back made 51 appearances in all competitions for Luton last season and the Hatters are keen to reward him with a new contract.

Luton are keen to sort out the long-term futures of a number of their players following promotion and they hope Bell will be the first of many to agree a new deal.

News of Bell agreeing a new contract will come as a massive boost to Luton boss Rob Edwards as he plans ahead for life in the Premier League with the full-back set to play a key role again next season.

Jamaican international Bell started his career with Birmingham City in 2011, but only made one appearance amongst loan spells at Nuneaton Town, Kidderminster Harriers, Mansfield Town, Swindon Town and Gillingham.

In 2015 Bell joined Fleetwood Town and made 137 appearances in two-and-a-half years before switching to then League One Blackburn in 2018, helping them win promotion back to the Championship before joining Luton in the summer of 2021.
