MK Dons have signed Dutch goalkeeper Wieger Sietsma on a free transfer.

The 21-year-old has been on trial with the Dons and caught the eye of boss Robbie Neilson, who has rewarded him with a permanent switch to Stadium MK.

Sietsma, who represented the likes of FC Groningen, SC Heerenveen and FC Emmen during his time in Holland, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal, with the option for a further 12 months.

The deal is subject to international clearance.

“It’s very exciting,” Sietsma told iFollow MK Dons. “This is a big club in a big stadium and I’m looking forward to the season.

“It was an easy decision to join. It’s always been a dream for me to play in England and I’m really excited to play at Stadium MK.”

Boss Neilson told mkdons.com: “Wieger came in at the back end of last season on trial and impressed. He then returned at the start of this season and really kicked on.

“He is a good young keeper who is developing all the time. We want him to come in to push and compete with Lee (Nicholls).”
