THE Irish winger joined the Sky Blues from Norwich City for an undisclosed fee in the January 2009 transfer window.
Bell started his professional career at Rushden and Diamonds and enjoyed a brief stint at Premier League Middlesborough but made a name for himself in 2007/08 as part of Mike Newell's Luton Town side.
The Kettering-born midfielder attracted the attention of Leicester City and spent the remainder of the 2007/08 season on loan at the Walkers Stadium although a permament move was scrapped following the Foxes' relegation to League One.
But he secured himself a move to English football's second tier with Norwich City in summer 2008 where he made 19 appearances for the Canaries ahead of his move to the Ricoh Arena.
Bell made an immediate impression at the Ricoh and scooped up the 2008/09 Goal of the Season award with a halfway line effort in a home clash with Doncaster Rovers.
He also netted himself three goals in 28 starts in 2009/10 and two goals in 23 appearances in 2010/11.
