MK Dons have re-signed midfielder Ben Reeves on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old has been training with the Dons this summer, following his departure from Charlton Athletic, and has now made his return to Stadium MK a permanent one.
Reeves scored 32 goals in 135 appearances during his first spell with the Club between 2013 and 2017 and played a key role in securing promotion to the Sky Bet Championship during the 2014/15 campaign - the first of two promotions he has enjoyed from this division, having helped Charlton to Play-Off success last term.
He becomes Paul Tisdale’s eighth signing of the summer. The deal was announced first to supporters at the Squad Presentation Evening, where he was handed the number 7 shirt.
“I’m really happy,” Reeves told iFollow MK Dons in his first interview since returning to the Club.
“I came here, mainly just to get fit, but at the same time I was interested to see what it was like here. I wasn’t expecting anything to happen and I’m not sure the Club were either but it just grew and I think it’s worked out well for both parties.
“I can’t wait to get going again. I pretty much enjoyed every minute of my time here before. That promotion-winning season stands out, of course, as does the Manchester United game. I want to add those memories and go one better if we can.”
Born in Dorset, Reeves began his career with Southampton and signed professional terms with the Saints in April 2011.
He made 13 appearances for the Premier League outfit, while also enjoying loan spells at Dagenham & Redbridge and Southend United, before joining MK Dons on a free transfer ahead of the 2013/14 season.
Reeves went on feature 135 times for the Dons, helping them achieve promotion to the Sky Bet Championship in 2014/15, before leaving the Club in June 2017 to sign for Charlton Athletic.
The attacking midfielder spent two years at the Valley, totalling 68 appearances as well as adding another Sky Bet League One promotion to his CV last season.
