Stags sign full back on loan

Mansfield Town have captured left-back Amari’i Bell on loan from Birmingham City until the New Year.

The 20-year-old, who spent time on loan at Nuneaton Town and Kidderminster Harriers last season, joins Paul Cox’s squad with immediate effect and trained with his new team-mates for the first time this morning.

The youngster is eligible to stay with the club until Saturday 3rd January – and is expected to feature in the Stags’ pre-season campaign, which includes a match with his parent club.

“I’m happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started,” said Bell, speaking to the club’s official website. “I like to have the ball and pass it, but if the gaffer plays a different ways then I can easily adapt to that.”

Bell is well-known to first team coach, Micky Moore, whom coached him at Solihull Moors in the infancy of his career and then signed him on loan at Nuneaton Town.

“I’ve worked with Micky at Solihull Moors, Nuneaton Town and now here and I’m happy to be working with him again. This is a good league club and as a young player it’s what I need.”

He added: “The main thing [about the move] is experience and I need some Football League games under my belt.”
