Fergus Bell: Mansfield Town sign ex-AC Monza midfielder

Midfielder Fergus Bell has joined Mansfield Town, subject to international clearance.

The 23-year-old arrives on a free transfer after a successful trial with the League Two club.

London-born Bell is a former Sunderland and Hibernian youth player, who most recently featured for Italian lower-league side AC Monza.

"My main targets are to score as many goals as I can. I think I can bring that to this team," said Bell.

The midfielder also has previous experience playing in Spain with Jerez Industrial, when former England manager Glenn Hoddle had a link with the fourth-tier side through his academy in 2010.

Bell is the second player to leave AC Monza and move to the Stags, with striker Alex Fisher joining last month.
