I’m just happy that I’m back here and I can’t wait to get going with the lads again.

Coming here last year and being given the freedom to go out and play my football, revived my whole season. I got on really well with the gaffer and the staff and the lads were great too.

This was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down – at home, playing for a great club like MK Dons.”
