Ben Reeves has committed his future to MK Dons by signing a new two-year contract.

Last season’s Player of the Year had been retained on a one-year option taken up by the club last month, but the new deal ensures he stays with the club until 2016.

Reeves enjoyed an excellent first season with Dons after joining from Southampton on a free transfer, scoring 11 goals in 35 appearances.

“I saw last season what a great club this is and how successful it can be,” he said.

“Personally, last season was good but I know I can play a lot better.

“I’m just looking really excited about the new season. This is my first pre-season in two years so I will hopefully fit from day one.

“I’m thankful to the fans for accepting me so quickly and the way they supported me throughout last year.

“They were brilliant with me and it made it so much easier to settle down.”

Dons boss Karl Robinson said: “We’re very fortunate to have secured Ben’s services for the next two years. It’s great news for the Football Club.

“We took up the option but I wasn’t going to let his contract run out. The fact Ben is willing to sign a contract with us is great news for us all too.

“He’s got all the technical components to play at the top level.

“The sky is the limit for Reevesy and I’m looking forward to working with him once again.”
