Aneke remains a Don

31 March 2017

Fans’ favourite Chuks Aneke will be at Stadium MK next season.

The Club has exercised an option in the powerful attacker’s contract which will see remain with MK Dons until the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

“I’m delighted to have him for another year,” Robbie Neilson told mkdons.com. “Getting Chuks’ contract secured is a big step for us.

“When he’s been fit and playing, he’s been one of our main players. The key thing is getting him on the pitch consistently.

“It’s been a difficult period for him but he’s shown tremendous attitude and he’s working hard to be ready for next season.”

Aneke added to MK Dons PlayerHD: “I’m delighted to be staying. For me, I just want to play football and enjoy it, like I did earlier this season.

“The supporters have been great with me and I want to show them what I can do over a longer period of time.”

The 23-year-old has impressed in his 18 appearances this season, playing a key role in the Dons’ turnaround in form at the start of the New Year.

He scored back-to-back braces in the games against Northampton Town and Peterborough United – the latter of his two strikes against Posh a definite Goal of the Season contender.

Aneke’s 2016/17 season was cut short due to a hamstring injury but the 23-year-old will be back the forthcoming campaign, where he’ll be looking to continue his excellent start to life as a Don.
