Nigel Reo-Coker signs for MK Dons

    Former Wimbledon player returns to help in relegation battle.

    Nigel Reo-Coker has signed at MK Dons until the end of the season.

    Reo-Coker has been training with the Dons for three weeks and featured in the last two Under-23s fixtures. The move is subject to international clearance.

    The former top flight player will bring a wealth of experience to the side. Reo-Coker played for Wimbledon from 2002 to 2004, scoring 6 goals in 58 appearances, captaining the side in Milton Keynes during the 2003/04 season.

    He went on to play for many teams including West Ham, Aston Villa and Vancouver Whitcaps FC.
      
    Speaking to mkdons.com, he said: “I’m very happy to get the deal over the line. This a great opportunity for me and I’m thankful to Dan for giving me this opportunity.
     
    “I’ve enjoyed my time here so far. The atmosphere of the Club makes it so easy to settle in and everyone has been great since I’ve been here – from the backroom staff to the front-room staff and even the supporters. There is a real family-friendly atmosphere which is what the original foundations of the Club is built on.
     
    “I feel good and I feel like I have good foundations to build upon. Right now, we are in a results situation – we’ve started to get results which is important but now it’s about keeping that winning mentality going. It’s a relegation fight and we just have to make sure we get the wins we need.”
     
    Dan Micciche said: “I’m pleased to have Nigel signed until the end of the season. First and foremost, credit must go to Nigel because from day one here he has worked hard and has been a positive influence around the place.
     
    “We are light in the midfield having lost Alex Gilbey to injury so he provides us with another option there. He brings huge experience and great leadership qualities, which will be invaluable to us – we have some big games coming up and he has that experience of how to handle high-pressured situations.
     
    “We are both comfortable with the agreement we’ve got and I’m sure he will add to what we are doing here.”

    MK Dons host Blackpool at Stadium:MK on Saturday.
