MK Dons have signed former Leeds United defender Scott Wootton on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old left Elland Road in the summer and started his career at Manchester United.

The centre-back has agreed a two-year deal.

This is a really good, forward-thinking club and I’m delighted to be here.

I’ve not had much of a pre-season so it might take a little while to fully integrate into the squad but I’m excited to, hopefully, play regular first-team football in a good team with good players.

– Scott Wootton, MK Dons
