“I’m delighted to get this done,” Gladwin said. “I’ve been training here for a few weeks now. Originally, I initially came in to stay fit but I really enjoyed it and we started talking off the back of that. I’m excited to be an MK Dons player now.

“There are a great bunch of lads here, who have welcomed me into the dressing room right away. The team is looking to play football the right way and that’s something that suits me. I look forward to getting started properly.”

“He originally came in for training to keep his fitness up but he’s grabbed his opportunity.” Martin told mkdons.com.

“He’s been unfortunate with injuries recently but he looks to be in a good place and he’s shown us the quality he possesses during training. It’s a good sign when the players are coming up to me and asking when we are signing him!

“He’s a good character and a very good player. He’s got a number of good attributes and he also brings with him a real physical presence. We’re very pleased to have him.”
