His manager wants to keep him next season, but out-of-contract Josh McEachran says he will decide his future in due course.

The 28-year-old signed in March and has made 12 appearances for Dons since. Playing for the majority of his career in the Championship, McEachran's experience has helped Dons to 10th place in League One, playing for the most part alongside Andrew Surman - another player Russell Martin would love to keep for another season.

The manager said: "There are a number of players who are out of contract- we've spoken about Andew Surman and Josh McEachran - two guys we'd love to keep. But there are a lot of factors to take into account - family, travel. We'll do our very best to keep the players who have really helped us this year not only on the pitch but off it as well."

For McEachran, who signed a short-term deal to play for the club until the end of the season after being released by Birmingham City in January, playing for Dons this season has suited him perfectly, he admits, but admitted his future has not yet been decided.

"We'll have a chat but I'm just taking it game-by-game," he said. "Russ knows my situation, I'm absolutely loving my time here, playing games, playing the way we're playing. It's perfect for me. But we'll have to see what happens in the summer."
