The 20-year-old came came through the academy system at Arsenal before making a move as an 18-year-old to Carrow Road. The marksman finished the 2020/21 season as Norwich U23s’ top scorer, earning him a move to the National League with Southend on loan last season.

And at Roots Hall, he finished the season with eight goals in 16 starts.

Dennis has completed his medical at Stadium MK, and said: “I can’t wait to get started. I’ve spoken to the manager and he told me this is an opportunity for me. I’ll be looking to learn as much as I can from him and the other players here.”

He added: “I am a fast, powerful forward who likes to get in behind, create chances and hopefully score some goals.”
