Harvie commits future to MK Dons

Defender signs new deal to continue at Stadium MK...

1 September 2022

Daniel Harvie has put pen to paper a new contract and committed his future to MK Dons.

Harvie, 24, moved to Stadium MK from Ayr United in July 2020 and has since totalled 86 appearances in an MK Dons shirt, as well as 13 goal involvements. He is the second longest-tenured player at the Club, behind only Dean Lewington.

The Club exercised the option in Harvie’s initial contract this summer, which was to keep him at Stadium MK until June 2023. He has now signed new terms to remain as an MK Dons player beyond this date.

“I’m delighted,” Harvie said after penning his new deal. “I have enjoyed my time here ever since I joined and to extend that was something I really wanted to do.

“We are going through a transitional period but I believe we are on the right path. We have an exciting young squad and it’s something I want to continue to be a part of going forward because I believe the future is bright for the Club.

“I’m still young myself and there is still a lot more to come from me. I feel I have improved so much since joining the Club, especially under the Gaffer and the staff, and I believe they can continue to make me a better player and person.”

Born in Glasgow, Harvie began his career with Aberdeen and made his senior debut as a substitute in a Scottish Premiership fixture with Partick Thistle in March 2016.

The left back, who joined Ayr United in July 2018, made 116 senior club appearances during his time north of the border, while he also totalled over 20 international caps for Scotland at every youth level from Under-15s through to Under-21s.

Harvie joined MK Dons in July 2020 as their first summer signing ahead of the 2020/21 campaign. He made 37 appearances in his maiden campaign at Stadium MK before adding a further 46 games across all competitions last term.

Sporting Director Liam Sweeting said: “I am delighted that Danny has agreed to commit his future to the Club. He is an extremely important presence for us on the pitch but also off it - he is one of the guys who has helped protect the culture of the group during this transition period.

“For me, this is as good as any new signing, because we see Danny as an important contributor for us in the short term but also the medium and long term as well. He has grown considerably over the last two years, taking responsibility and providing a leadership voice within our dressing room.

“This is also a further example of the alignment we have from top to bottom at the Club, because Dan, along with Warren O’Hora and Josh McEachran earlier this summer, have committed to us and shown belief and confidence in what we are trying to do and achieve.”

Head Coach Liam Manning added: “Dan is a valuable member of the squad, not just for the quality he possesses but his hunger and drive. He is a leader in the dressing room and a terrific example to the young players we have. We are delighted that he has chosen to continue his career here at MK Dons.”
