David Bell has moved to Notts County after having his contract at Coventry City cancelled by mutual consent last Friday.
The 29-year-old midfielder made 98 appearances and scored six times in his five seasons with the Sky Blues. After beginning his career with the Rushden and Diamonds youth side, Bell enjoyed a successful spell with Luton Town where he won the Internet Player of the Season and Young Supporters' Player of the Season in 2007, despite failing to make the starting line-up at the start of the year.
He moved to Leicester City and then Norwich City before signing on at Coventry. Since 2005, he has played a mere two seasons below Championship level and he could represent the experienced and steady midfielder that County need next season.
The steady stream of signings at Meadow Lane gives fans of the East Midlands club high hopes of success next season. Bell is the latest of the club's summer signings, Chris Kiwomya already bringing the likes of Danny Haynes and Mustapha Dumbuya to the club.
"It's been on the cards for a few weeks now, but it was a bit of a whirlwind when it was finally done," he told reporters. "I went to Coventry's training ground to sign the paperwork there, then jumped straight into my car to St George's Park and met the Notts secretary there to sign and then got changed and straight into training."
The new signing's eagerness to join is matched by his expectations for next season.
He added: "We've signed some good players and with the ones that were already here I'm optimistic we can have a right good go at it in the league."
