Dons agree deal to sign Pawlett

9 March 2017

Midfielder Peter Pawlett has signed a pre-contract agreement with MK Dons.

Pawlett, who is currently with Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen, will move to Stadium MK this summer on a two-year deal. He will remain with the Pittodrie outfit for the remainder of the 2016/17 campaign.

The 26-year-old has made over 210 senior appearances for Aberdeen and St. Johnstone, 177 of which have come in Scottish football’s top flight.

After putting pen-to-paper on the agreement, Pawlett told mkdons.com: “I’m delighted to sign for MK Dons.

“I think it’s the right time in my career to come down to England. As soon as I heard of the interest, I knew that this was where I wanted to be – this is a great club with a great stadium and it was a huge attraction for me.

“The ambition and potential here is huge so hopefully I can come here next season and we can really progress – I’m really looking forward to it.”

Dons boss Robbie Neilson said of the midfielder: “I’m looking forward to getting him down here next season. He’s had a really good career in Scotland and played a lot of games at a real high level.

“He feels it’s time for him to make that next step and hopefully we can provide the platform for him to do that.

“He’s direct, quick and makes things happen – he’s the type of player I think we need at this Club. Hopefully he can come down and replicate the good performances he’s had up at Aberdeen.”
