MK Dons land Wigan Athletic winger on loan

MK Dons have signed Wigan Athletic winger Ryan Colclough on a season-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old impressed at struggling Crewe Alexandra last season, scoring 12 goals.

He then moved to Wigan in January where he helped them gain promotion to The Championship.

I’m ecstatic. He’s somebody who I tried to sign last season and has been one of our main targets for six months.

He made his second-ever professional appearance against us and I remember watching his debut while we prepared for that game against Crewe.

He can play off both sides. He comes from a club like Wigan, who play a similar style and he started at Crewe, which means he’s been developed properly.

He’s very direct. He’s aggressive in his finishing and I think he’s certainly someone who can make us a better team. He’ll make us more dynamic offensively, being a goalscoring wide player.

MK Dons smash transfer record to land Agard

MK Dons have broken their transfer record to sign Bristol City striker Kieran Agard.

The fee is officially undisclosed but is believed to be more than the sum the Dons paid Crawley Town for defender Kyle McFadzean two years ago.

Agard helped the Robins gain promotion to The Championship in 2015.

He has agreed a three-year deal at stadium:mk.

We’re ecstatic to have him at the Football Club. We’ve had to be patient with this deal but it’s an important one for us.

He’s been on our board for a while now but I never thought he was a realistic target. However, with everyone’s hard work and Kieran accepting the challenge here, we’ve got the deal done – I couldn’t be happier.

His goal record, especially in this division, speaks for itself – he’s also been promoted from this league twice.

I think this signing sends out a message – we are ambitious and we are heading in the right direction.

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.

MK Dons have signed former Arsenal midfielder Chuks Aneke.

The 23-year-old has signed a one year deal at Stadium MK, with the option of a 12 month extension.

His former clubs include Arsenal, Stevenage, Preston North End, Crewe Alexandra and, more recently, Belgium's Waregem.

The former England youth international is currently undergoing a rehabilitation period following a knee injury.

“Chuks is someone we’ve known about for a very long time. He’s a very talented player and I’m excited to work with him.

“While he isn’t ready for match action just yet, we didn’t want to miss out on bringing him to the Football Club. Also, with the abolition of emergency and youth loans outside of the transfer window, we are limited to what we can do during the season.

“We wanted to have Chuks here at the Club now so we can take control of his rehab and he can be around his new teammates.”
