Striker Rhys Healey says the decision to re-join MK Dons from Cardiff City on a permanent basis was a "no brainer".

The 24-year-old had a successful loan spell with the Dons last season, scoring nine goals in 21 games.

He then returned to Cardiff where he featured in three Premier League games.

However, he has now completed a permanent move to the Dons after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee, and Healey says he's looking forward to playing regular football in League One.

“It was a no brainer for me,” Healey said.

“I really enjoyed my time here last season so as soon as this move come around, I was on to and desperate to get it done.

“I was keeping an eye on results every week - I was a secret fan! I was desperate for the guys to get promoted and I was really happy when we got over the line.

“I felt like I was playing some of my best football here last season so I’m ready to go again this season and kick on even more. Like last season, I want to work hard, score goals and help the team push up the league.”

Meanwhile, highly-rated Norwich City defender Max Aarons has signed a new five-year contract with the club to end speculation over his future, while left-back Myles Kenlock has also agreed a new deal at Ipswich Town.
