Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey has joined MK Dons on a month's loan.

Forster-Caskey is an England under 21s international and has played more than 100 senior games at club level.

The 21-year-old will stay at stadium:mk until October 24.

"To have played for England at all youth levels and plenty of times in the Championship, it shows what a quality player he is.

I saw him when he came on for Dele (Alli) in the U21s recently and he’s someone I’ve got tremendous respect for. Keith Andrews and Matt Upson played with him at Brighton so we weren’t going in blind, plus he’s got Championship experience and came within our wage structure.

Jake will bring tremendous footballing ability to the group – he’s a very talented individual."

– Karl Robinson, MK Dons Manager

Forster-Caskey is the Dons' second signing of the day, with former Cardiff City striker Nicky Maynard also joining the club.

MK Dons have signed former Cardiff City striker Nicky Maynard on a free transfer.

The 28-year-old has been without a club since leaving the Bluebirds in the summer, but has now agreed a deal with the Dons until the end of the season.

Maynard has also played for the likes of West Ham United and Bristol City.

"I’m really pleased we have got him and I think the fans will be pleased that we can get players of his quality through the door - it shows again, as a Football Club, what we can achieve.

With Nicky, we were firm from the word go with what we could offer and initially it was a shock for him and his people. They had to go away and think about it but I’m delighted he’s decided to sign."

– Karl Robinson, MK Dons Manager

Maynard could make his Dons debut in tomorrow's Capital One Cup clash against Premier League side Southampton.

"There was no hesitation.

I really like it here so I’m more than happy to put pen to paper. Hopefully I can keep performing and have a good season in the Championship.

Everyone is ready for the challenge. We’ve got the players here so I can’t see why we can’t do well – we proved that on Saturday.

Games will get tougher because teams now know what we’re about but I’m looking forward to every game.”

Aguza has agreed a two-year contract and joins Peru midfielder Cristian Benavente in making the move to stadium:mk from Madrid this summer.

“I’ve seen Sergio play a number of times and he’s an exceptionally talented player. He’s very dynamic in his movements and his ball retention as well.

He was captain of Real Madrid Castilla so he’ll bring tremendous strength to us. He’s someone who will really add to the group and he might be able to give us something we’ve never had before.”

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.”
