Antony Kay has signed a new one-year deal with MK Dons.

The 32-year-old defender will start his fourth season at stadium:mk with a deal extended until July 2016.

Kay played an important role in the Dons’ 2014/15 promotion-winning campaign, featuring in all-but one of their 46 league fixtures, and he is fourth in the all-time leading appearances list for the club.

This deal ensures the Dons’ backline, which helped to keep a club-record 24 clean-sheets last season, will remain intact for the men from MK1’s inaugural Championship campaign.

Kay said: “I’m very happy to sign. This season coming will be my fourth here, which is the second-longest spell I’ve ever had with a club – I’m really enjoying my time here.

“The Chairman and the Gaffer knew that I wanted to stop here and thankfully they wanted to keep me too so it was good for both parties.

“Last season was very special, getting promoted in the way we did, and I’m excited to get started again. I enjoyed the celebrations but the hard work starts now – I’ll be ready and raring to go when we’re back in for pre-season.”
