MK Dons have signed Nottingham Forest winger Gboly Ariyibi on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old American only joined Forest in January from Chesterfield but failed to break into the first team.

Ariyibi has made more than 100 senior appearances so far in his career, having also played for Leeds United and Tranmere Rovers.

We’ve been working on this one for quite some time so we are delighted to finally get the deal completed.

Gboly will bring another dimension to our squad with his explosive pace and aggression in 1v1 situations.

– Robbie Neilson, MK Dons manager

Northampton Town have signed former MK Dons striker Dean Bowditch on a two-year contract.

The 31-year-old was released by the League one side at the end of the last season.

He'd spent six years at Stadium MK and was part of the squad which won promotion to the Championship in 2015.

Cobblers manager manager Justin Edinburgh told the club's website: " We are really pleased to bring Dean to the club."

"He is a versatile attacking player, he can play as a striker, as a midfielder or in the hole and he gives us options. We have spoken a lot about putting together a well balanced attacking unit with options and Dean fits in with that policy."

Peterborough United striker Lee Angol has joined League Two side Mansfield Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has struggled for game time at Posh under manager Grant McCann and was loaned out to Lincoln City towards the end of last season.

He helped the Imps gain promotion from the National League during his spell at Sincil Bank and had attracted interest from a number of clubs.

Angol's Peterborough teammate Hayden White has also completed a permanent move to Mansfield following a successful loan stint.

Meanwhile, former Norwich City midfielder Conor McGrandles has agreed to move to MK Dons on a free transfer.

The 21-year-old has signed a two-year-deal and will be hoping to establish himself in England having struggled with injury during his time at Carrow Road.

“When I learnt MK Dons were interested, I knew that it would be a great place for me to come to," McGrandles said.

"I know the ambition the club is to get out of the league again and that was a big factor. I know the manager and the coaching staff well too so that was a big draw."
