Midfielder to join on a two-year deal from 1st July...

MK Dons have agreed terms to sign Norwich City midfielder Conor McGrandles on a free transfer.

The 21-year-old Scotsman began his career with Falkirk, where he made 82 first-team appearances and scored eight goals.

McGrandles then joined Sky Bet Championship club Norwich in August 2014 and spent three years with the East Anglian club before Thursday’s move to Stadium MK.

Speaking to MK Dons PlayerHD, the dynamic midfielder said: “I’m very pleased to sign here. You never want to be worrying about your future over the offseason so to get this done so early is perfect.

“When I learnt MK Dons were interested, I knew that it would be a great place for me to come to. I know the ambition the Club is to get out of the league again and that was a big factor. I know the manager and the coaching staff well too so that was another big draw.”

He added: “I’m extremely grateful to MK Dons for giving me this chance and hopefully I can take it. As long as I do what I know I can do then I think they’ll be happy with me.”

Boss Robbie Neilson said of his new midfielder: “We are delighted to be able to bring Conor in to develop further at MK Dons.

“He is a young and hungry player but also brings with him a wealth of experience having played a number of games at first-team level already.”

McGrandles becomes the Dons’ second signing ahead of the 2017/18 season, following the capture of Peter Pawlett back in March.
