Burton Albion have completed the signing of former Crewe midfielder Lee Bell for his third spell at the club since first joining in 2005.
The 29-year-old had previous stints at the club, the last being in 2007.
Bell had impressed during three appearances during pre-season and was offered a one-year deal by manager Gary Rowett.
The former Macclesfield player told Albion's official website: "I'm delighted to be signing. Not many people make three debuts for one club.
"I'm pleased it's happened so now I'm looking forward to getting started. It's been a long summer, I had interest from the SPL and possibilities of moving down to London but I didn't really fancy that so it had been an uncertain summer really."
