Flying full back Amari'i Bell arrived at Ewood Park in mid-January from Fleetwood Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old left-back put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half-year contract after completing a medical and will bolster Tony Mowbray's promotion-chasing squad.

After rising through the ranks at Birmingham, Bell had a number of loan spells at various clubs including Nuneaton, Swindon and Gillingham before signing for Fleetwood in July 2015.

Following an impressive maiden campaign on the Fylde coast, Bell was recognised for his standout performances by being shortlisted for the club's Young Player of the Year award.

The appointment of Uwe Rosler saw Bell retain his status as a first-team regular in 2016/17, as Fleetwood went on an 18-match unbeaten run to reach the League One play-offs.

The versatile defender played 90 minutes against Rovers when the sides met at Ewood Park in October, and joins the Blues despite reported interest from Championship clubs.
