MK Dons have signed two strikers on transfer deadline day, capturing Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Alex Revell.

Emmanuel-Thomas joins on loan from Queens Park Rangers, but has struggled for games at Loftus Road this season. He is a familiar face to MK Dons though, having led the line for Bristol City last season as they cruised to the League 1 title ahead of Karl Robinson’s side.

The 25-year-old joins on loan until the end of the season and will wear number 13.

Revell joins from Cardiff City. Racking up in excess of 400 league appearances during his career, the 32-year-old has scored 75 goals, most of which came at Rotherham in a spell between 2009 and 2015.

While two have joined, Lee Hodson has joined Kilmarnock on loan until the end of the season. The full back has found first team opportunities few and far between this season with Jordan Spence being the main stay at right back.

Like Simon Church, who was loaned out to Aberdeen earlier tonight (Monday), Hodson is keen to make an impression to get into the European Championship squad for Northern Ireland.

Dons have also come to an agreement with Dale Jennings to end his contract by mutual consent. The 22-year-old former Bayern Munich winger has failed to make an impact since signing for the club in summer.
