Don Deal: Anthony Stewart returns to Stadium MK

Defender returns as final summer signing...

1 September 2023

MK Dons have completed the loan signing of Aberdeen defender Anthony Stewart.

Stewart, 30, will spend the 2023/24 campaign with the Club, becoming Graham Alexander’s eleventh and final signing of the summer.

Based in Milton Keynes, Stewart returns to the Dons for a second loan spell having spent time on loan at Stadium MK during the second half of last season.

The former Wycombe Wanderers man has 336 career appearances to his name, the majority coming for the Chairboys, with whom he won two promotions, including one from Sky Bet League Two in 2017/18.

Stewart said: "What can I say, I’m back at a fantastic club, with great staff and management team. I can’t wait for the challenge of getting promoted together."

Born in Brixton, Stewart is a product of Wycombe Wanderers, who signed his first professional contract with the Chairboys in 2011.

The centre-back made his EFL debut the following year and totalled 65 appearances across the next three seasons before spending time on loan with Crewe Alexandra during the 2014/15 campaign.

Stewart returned to Adams Park the summer of 2015 and quickly re-established himself as a regular for the Buckinghamshire outfit. He helped Wycombe win promotion from League Two in 2018, before playing a key role in their League One play-off success in 2019/20, scoring in their Play-Off Final victory over Oxford United.

He played 33 times in Wycombe’s sole Championship season, and added a further 42 games to his total last season, before making a switch to the Scottish Premiership in the summer.

Appointed captain of the Dons upon his arrival, he totalled 22 top-flight games north of the border before spending the second half of the campaign at Stadium MK, featuring in five games.
