MK Dons can confirm the departure of Scott Twine to Burnley for an undisclosed fee.

Twine joined the Dons from Swindon Town in June 2021 and made 50 appearances in his sole season at Stadium MK, scoring 20 goals, providing 13 assists and earning the Sky Bet League One Player of the Season accolade.

Sporting Director Liam Sweeting told mkdons.com: “When we signed Scott, we knew we had secured one of the most exciting players within the EFL - what followed was performance after performance of top quality, from a player who was all-in on our culture and thrived playing in a team-first environment that challenged him to be the best he could be.

“Those performances, along with winning Sky Bet League One Player of the Year, were always going to attract interest and we have again negotiated a deal that we feel is good for the Club in both the short and long term.

“We wish Scott all the best moving forwards and can be very proud in the part we played in his journey. By concluding this transfer now, we have clarity to best prepare the team ahead of the new season and remain focused on our target ahead.”

Head Coach Liam Manning said: “I cannot speak highly enough of Twiney, first of all as a person and then as a player who has developed tremendously over the past 12 months.

“Credit to the coaching staff here for the development we saw over the course of last season but also Twiney for his dedication and commitment in training, on the pitch on Saturdays and also behind-the-scenes when nobody was watching.

“We wish him nothing but success moving forwards and I’m sure we all be keeping an eager eye on his future career.”

Manning added: “Scott’s journey is another example of our model working effectively and his departure now opens a door for others to step in, contribute and have an impact.”
