Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels admits he is resigned to losing goalkeeper Cammy Bell at the end of the season.
Bell, who has just over one year on his Rugby Park contract, has been linked with a transfer to West Ham United.
Shiels insists he is not surprised by the speculation following the stopper's display in the Scottish League Cup final victory over Celtic last month.
And should the move materialise, Shiels is adamant the deal will be good for all parties.
"Part of my remit is to develop players and sell them on if the deal's good for all parties concerned," Shiels said.
"My job is also reducing the debt and I expected interest in Cammy after his display in the final.
"Cammy's kept 15 clean sheets this season which is remarkable. He's 24 and now might be as good a time as any to move on."
