Jabo Ibehre has today agreed a permanent move to Colchester United on a free transfer, following the cancellation of his contract at MK Dons by mutual consent.
The Islington-born forward has spent over three seasons with the Dons since signing from Walsall on a free transfer in the summer of 2009, making 112 appearances in Dons colours and scoring 15 goals.
Ibehre has played roles in two of the Dons’ play-off campaigns – against Peterborough United and Huddersfield Town – and enjoyed his most successful season at stadiummk last campaign, when he found the net nine times in 47 games.
The 29-year-old made a big impression on the MK Dons supporters, firmly establishing himself as a fans’ favourite.
Before leaving Ibehre told mkdons.com: “I have had an incredible time at MK Dons. I’ve really enjoyed every minute of it and I have learned a lot along the way. I have made some great friends and it is a Club I will always hold close to my heart.
“I have had some great moments with the Club and the fans have always offered me incredible support through thick and thin. They have always stood by me, shown great faith in me and I am extremely thankful to them.
“I would like to wish all my team-mates and friends at the Club the best success for the remainder of the season.
“My aim now is to open a new chapter in the book with Colchester. I had a great time on loan there and I am excited about playing games. We have a challenge on our hands at the moment, but the team feel confident.”
The likeable forward enjoyed three loan spells away from the Dons during his time at MK1 with Stockport County, Southend United and most recently Colchester United, with whom he spent the first half of the 2012/13 season.
The Club would like to thank Jabo for all his contributions during his time with the Dons and wish him the very best for the future.
