MK Dons have signed midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker on a deal until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old, who was part of the old Wimbledon team that moved to Milton Keynes in 2003, has been training with the Dons for the last three weeks.

Reo-Coker has also played for the likes of West Ham United, Aston Villa and Ipswich Town in his career and is a former England under 21s captain.

“I’m very happy to get the deal over the line. This a great opportunity for me and I’m thankful to Dan (Micciche) for giving me this opportunity," Reo-Coker said.

“I’ve enjoyed my time here so far. The atmosphere of the club makes it so easy to settle in and everyone has been great since I’ve been here – from the backroom staff to the supporters. There is a real family-friendly atmosphere which is what the original foundations of the club is built on.

“I feel good and I feel like I have good foundations to build upon. Right now, we are in a results situation – we’ve started to get results, which is important, but now it’s about keeping that winning mentality going. It’s a relegation fight and we just have to make sure we get the wins we need.”
