In the final minutes of the summer transfer window, MK Dons managed to secure a deal to sign Alex Gilbey from Sky Bet League One rivals Wigan Athletic.

The Essex midfielder began his football career with hometown club Colchester United, for whom he played over 120 times and scored eight goals. He also won various club awards, including Player of the Year in 2015/16.

His excellent form in Essex saw Gilbey draw interest from a number of Championship clubs as a free agent in summer 2016, including Wigan Athletic who he eventually signed for in June.

He totalled 20 appearances for the Latics before making the switch to Stadium MK, where he is already proving a popular figure with the supporters because of his industrious performances in the middle of the park.
