MK Dons have been dealt a blow with the news that key midfielder Ben Reeves will miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

Reeves, who earned his first call-up to the Northern Ireland squad in February, has been a regular in the Dons side since signing from Southampton last summer and is the club's top scorer.

"I’m gutted to lose Reevesy because he’s been one of our players of the season," manager Karl Robinson told the club's official website.

"He is a great guy and a great player, as we’ve all seen this season through his goals, assists and performances.

“Knowing Reevesy like I do, I’m confident he’ll come back even stronger from this and hopefully he can pick up where he left off at the start of next season. I know he’ll work around the clock with our medical team to get right.”

“He’s someone we’ve watched throughout the season in the U21s at Everton and he’ll bring pace, trickery and excitement," manager Karl Robinson told the club's official website.

“He did very well for Tranmere earlier this season and he is highly thought of by Roberto Martinez and the coaches at Everton. I’d like to thank Roberto and Everton for allowing us to get this deal done and I look forward to working with him.”

Hall has played for non-league outfit Bromley briefly since, but he has now been snapped up by Dons manager Karl Robinson in the hope that he can recapture the form that served him so well at Roots Hall.

The former England Under-21 international completed the move earlier today and took part in training ahead of Saturday’s clash with Tranmere Rovers.

Manager Karl Robinson said: “Jordan is a talented young defender and he was part of our back four which kept five clean-sheets over Christmas. We’re hopeful he can help to sure-up a defence which has conceded an awful lot of goals in recent weeks.”

MK Dons utility man Shaun Williams is set to join Championship side Millwall for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract at The Den.

The transfer is subject to the formalities being completed and Football League clearance.

Dons manager Karl Robinson admits that it will be hard to replace Williams, who was named both MK Dons Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year last season.

“(Shaun) is going to be a big loss to the Football Club. His contract was due to run out at the end of the season and although we offered him a new deal, he’s decided to move on and we’ve got to respect that," he told the club's official website.

“I’m just extremely grateful and thankful to Shaun for all he’s done for me and the Football Club and I wish him all the best in this new chapter of his career.

"He’ll always be welcome back at Stadium MK whether that be as a fan or as a player."
