MK Dons have signed midfielders Ryan Watson and Lawson D'Ath on free transfers.

Both players will move to Stadium MK when their contracts at Barnet and Luton Town respectively expire at the end of the month.

Both Watson and D'Ath have agreed one-year deals.

The Dons have now welcomed three new arrivals in recent days with Exeter City defender Jordan Moore-Taylor joining on Tuesday.

“Ryan is a player who has very good pedigree having come through the ranks at Leicester City and he’s played regular football recently for Barnet," manager Paul Tisdale said.

“He is somebody who we watched while I was manager at Exeter City and there is certainly a lot going for him.

"Lawson is a forward-thinking midfielder who can play in a number of different positions. He’s also had experience in this division in the last three years.

“This season, we need to be competitive, robust and fluid team and Lawson provides us with those qualities. He is a very useful addition to the squad.”
