Dons beat off competition from other clubs, reportedly League Two side Harrogate Town as well as an unnamed Championship side.

The 18-year-old was convinced to leave Everton in August 2020 by Jackson, then working in the Leeds academy, who immediately promoted him to the U18s side despite being a couple of years younger than a lot of his team-mates.

Jackson's faith in Dean continued as he was promoted up the ranks at Elland Road and was highly regarded by Leeds.

A hot-foot in front of goal, Dean netted 16 goals in 38 appearances for Leeds U21s, with four in five this season prior to his move to Stadium MK.
