Town Again Watch Howells
Friday, 13th Jan 2012 08:41
Town were amongst a number of clubs at Kenilworth Road to watch Luton’s Jake Howells in action as the Hatters beat Stockport 1-0 on Tuesday. The 20-year-old left-back or left midfielder is a player the Blues have been monitoring since last season with Charlton and Peterborough also understood to be interested.
After a spell as a youngster at Watford, Hemel Hempstead-born Howells progressed through the ranks at Luton and is contracted to the Hatters until the summer of 2012.
The 20-year-old has made 113 starts and 39 sub appearances, scoring 14 goals, since making his Hatters first team bow in May 2008.
In addition to three Wales U21 caps, Howells has also made four England C (non-league national side) appearances, scoring one goal.
Meanwhile, Blues boss Paul Jewell may be interested to see that his former Wigan winger David Cotterill has been released by Swansea.
Wales international Cotterill, 24, began his career at Bristol City, Jewell taking him to the Latics for £2 million in August 2006. He joined the Swans from Sheffield United for £600,000 in January 2010.
