Lee Bell On Verge Of Gresty Road Return

Former Alex and current Macclesfield Town midfielder Lee Bell looks set to return to Crewe after three years away.

An academy graduate, the Crewe born midfielder made over 50 appearances for the Alex in the Championship between 2002-2007. His last appearance coming in the Carling Cup home tie against Man Utd in October 2006 - not a bad way to sign off.

As the Alex 'attempted' to build a side to return to the Championship in 2007, Bell was deemed surplus to requirements and was released upon his request in January 2007.

Bell spent four months at Burton Albion before eventually signing for League Two Mansfield Town. He left Field Mill a year later after the Stags fell out of the League and signed for Macclesfield.

He's gone on to make over 80 appearances for Macc in his two years there and was this month named their Fan's Player Of The Season.

Last week Bell turned down a new deal at Macclesfield and, having spent his spare time coaching for the Crewe academy in recent months, the 27 year old is ready to put pen to paper on a 2 year deal at Gresty Road.
