CREWE ALEXANDRA have rejected Lee Bell's request to be loaned out.

The midfielder had hoped to be given the opportunity to play elsewhere, with new arrivals pushing him out of first team contention.

However, manager Dario Gradi (pictured) has insisted that the player is better to remain at Crewe and battle for a place.

"Lee has come to see me and he asked if he could go out on loan and play some first team games elsewhere, but I felt he was better with us at the moment."
