MK Dons' Executive Director Andy Cullen will leave the club to take up a similar role with League One rivals Portsmouth.

Mr Cullen spent 12 years at Stadium MK after moving from Norwich City in 2008, going on to represent the club on the EFL Board and has often been the club's leading voice behind chairman Pete Winkelman.

His day-to-day activities have been halted with immediate effect before his departure at the end of the month before he begins his new job as Chief Executive Officer at Fratton Park.

“I have been extremely fortunate to thoroughly enjoy over 12 incredible years at Stadium MK," he said. "But I believe that, after such a long tenure at MK Dons, the time is right to seek a fresh challenge.

“"I want to express my gratitude to Pete and his family for giving me such an amazing opportunity and for entrusting me with the day-to-day management of the football club. I have also been supported by an incredible team of talented colleagues across several different departments and I would like to thank all of them, along with the club partners and sponsors, the local media and, especially, the supporters who have been so kind to me and Jacqui.

“We have made so many friends with people who genuinely love this football club. We will never forget them, and we genuinely hope we can all remain connected. I will personally deeply miss everyone at Stadium MK and MK Dons will, forever, hold a very special place in my heart.”
