Coventry City have confirmed James McPake and David Bell have signed new contracts ahead of the start of the new season.

Centre-back McPake arrived from Livingston in January 2009 and he has agreed a deal at the Ricoh Arena until 2013.

Bell joined the Sky Blues from Norwich City around the same time as McPake and has accepted a contract until 2015 with the Championship club.

Manager Andy Thorn told the club's official website: "Bell and McPake have signed new deals committing them to the club for the next couple of years.

"Belly has been a revelation since we took over and after the injury troubles he's had he is now looking forward to spending more time in the first team.

"James also missed a lot of football last year with his broken back but he's got a few 90 minutes under his belt now and he's only going to get better.

"I brought both players into the club when I was chief scout and both are players I'd admired for quite a while."
