Bell signs new Wasps contract

Chris Bell has committed his future to London Wasps by signing a contract extension.

Bell endured a difficult first year at Adams Park after suffering a ruptured Achilles injury, but the fit-again centre has produced some impressive displays this season.

Wasps offered him a longer deal and Bell admits he did not have to think long about extending his stay with the club which is performing well in the Aviva Premiership and the Amlin Challenge Cup.

"I love playing for Wasps and the decision to extend my contract was an easy one to make," said Bell, who has made 15 appearances this season.

"I believe under Dai Young we will continue to improve and I am very excited about the future of the club and hope to be a big part of it."

Director of Rugby Dai Young said: "Chris has been excellent since he came here and worked very hard to get back from a tough injury.

"That work is being rewarded now and he's put in some fine performances this season. We are delighted he's committed his future here."
