Lee Hodson has signed a new two year contract to keep him at MK Dons.

The 23-year-old Northern Ireland international suffered a stop-start campaign last season, playing just 15 times in a season riddled with injuries and strong competition for places.

Hodson joined the club in July 2013 from Watford, where he was deemed surplus to requirements.

Having made himself the first choice right back at stadium:mk, injury put paid to the end of his debut season prematurely.

Recovering well over the summer, Hodson regained his place in the starting line-up for the first four games of last season, but a knee injury picked up in mid-August against Chesterfield ruled him out for three months.

He played a few times in the run up to Christmas, but was injured again, ruling him out until February.

In that time, Jordan Spence because the regular right back, and upon Hodson’s return, he struggled to get back into the team.

However, the defender has been rewarded with a new two-year deal for Dons’ first year in the Championship.

Earlier this month, Carl Baker signed a new one-year deal with the club, while Joe Walsh, who spend three months on loan with the club last season, joined on a permanent basis yesterday (Thursday).
