Grigg, 31, played under Paul Cook at Wigan Athletic and adds to the signing of former Wigan man Tom Naylor.

“Paul Cook had a massive role in bringing me into the club,” he said.

”For me to drop down to the National League, it had to be something special.

“As soon as I found out about the interest, it was something I wanted to pursue. To finally get it over the line is an amazing feeling.”

After starting out at Walsall, Grigg played for Brentford and Wigan before signing for Sunderland for a reported £3m fee in January 2019.

The Northern Ireland international joined MK Dons last summer.
