MK Dons have re-signed Bolton Wanderers winger Rob Hall on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old is no stranger to stadium:mk having spent time on loan with the Dons last season and in 2012.

Hall scored a hat-trick in the 6-1 win over Leyton Orient in April.

“It was an easy decision.

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.”

MK Dons winger Daniel Powell has agreed a new two-year contract with the club.

His new contract will keep him at stadium:mk until June 2017.

The 24-year-old came through the Dons' academy and scored 10 goals last season as Karl Robinson's side were promoted to The Championship.

“It’s been the perfect year for me.

It’s been a project of the Club’s to get into the Championship and now hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy two more years of playing at that level, if not higher.

I’ve been here since I was 14, so it’s been a while now. I’ve seen the club grow and grow and to be a part of that is a great privilege.”

He'll be joined by American stopper Cropper and former Bayern Munich man Jennings, who have both agreed one-year contracts - with the option of a further 12 months.

Jennings is no stranger to the Dons, having spent time on loan at the club in 2013, while Cropper was recently released by Southampton.

“I’m excited to have them on board. They will all bring different attributes to the group.

Cody has got tremendous potential and he fits the type of the person we want around the place. He’s a good size, got a great work ethic and wants to learn.

This is an opportunity for Dale, who knows he’s got work to do, but we all saw last time what he can do – he lifted the team and contributed to some good results.

Churchy is a really top lad, a good player and can score goals. He will add tremendous quality to our team.”
