Milton Keynes Dons can confirm that three first team squad players will leave the Club at the end of December upon the completion of their contracts.
Charlie Collins, Jordan Ivey-Ward and Awadh Ahmed have all become free agents as of today (Saturday) and are able to seek new clubs.
The Dons took up a six-month option on Collins’ contract in the summer and went on to spend four months on loan with Tamworth in the Blue Square Premier League where he has made 14 appearances and scored one goal.
Collins, a former Republic of Ireland Under-19 international, joined the Dons’ Academy set-up at the age of 16 after being spotted by Dons scouts and offered a two-year apprenticeship before signing professional terms in 2010.
The 21-year-old made four first team appearances for the Dons and has also enjoyed loan spells with Aldershot and Kettering Town.
Ivey-Ward penned a six-month professional contract in the summer; however the Club has not taken a six-month option up on his deal. The defender, who can also play as a centre-forward, has been on the Dons’ books for five years.
The teenager has not featured for the first team but has spent time on loan with Tamworth and Histon this season.
Ahmed also came through the MK Dons Academy system to earn a short-term professional contract at MK1 but has been unable to force his way into Karl Robinson’s first team plans. The forward has also spent time on loan with Conference North side Histon.
The Club would like to thank all of its departing players for their efforts during their time with MK Dons Football Club. They leave with our best wishes and with the best of luck for their respective careers.
