Mike Newell will add to his squad during the summer in a bid to push for promotion to the Premiership next season.

Luton look likely to miss out on the play-offs this season after struggling away from home all year but Newell believes his side will be one of the top teams in the Championship next season.

"I will need to add players next year," said Newell.

"I don't know whether that will be possible but if it is, I believe we will have a real chance of getting promotion next season.

"I know there will be restrictions on what I can do but I don't think we are that far away."

Meanwhile, the club have given midfielder Danny Stevens a one-year contract extension.

Stevens has yet to make his debut for the first team but some impressive displays for the club's reserves has persuaded Newell to give the starlet a new deal.
