Reeves extends Dons stay

12 August 2015

Ben Reeves has extended his contract with the Dons.

The popular midfielder has put pen-to-paper on a new deal which will keep him at MK1 until at least June 2017. His original contract was due to expire at the end of this season.

The news was announced before the Dons' 2-1 victory over Leyton Orient in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

“There was no hesitation,” Reeves said after that win at stadiummk. “I really like it here so I’m more than happy to put pen to paper. Hopefully I can keep performing and have a good season in the Championship.

He continued: “Everyone is ready for the challenge. We’ve got the players here so I can’t see why we can’t do well – we proved that on Saturday. Games will get tougher because teams now know what we’re about but I’m looking forward to every game.”

Since moving to MK1 from Premier League side Southampton, Reeves has made 73 appearances and scored 18 goals.

He took home four awards at the Club’s Player of the Year evening in 2013/14 and he continued his impressive form last season, helping to provide double-figure assists en route to promotion.

Dons boss Karl Robinson added: “It’s something we’ve been working on for a while but we know his agent very well. He told us not to worry because we’d get it done and we finally got it over the line (on Tuesday) morning.

“The quality he possesses is there for all to see and it gives us tremendous piece of mind that he’s signed this new deal.”
