    Milton Keynes Dons manager Paul Tisdale has provided an update on the situation regarding out of contract striker Chuks Aneke.

    Tisdale, speaking with the media in a press conference earlier today, answered the question that has been on the minds of most Dons fans since the team secured promotion back into League One.

    25-year-old Aneke played a large part in the Dons' automatic promotion, notching 17 goals and three assists in 38 League Two appearances.

    Understandably, Aneke has attracted attention from a number of clubs around the country and is believed to be looking at every option available to him - which does include the Dons, who have made him a contract offer.

    Tisdale, when asked about Aneke, explained: "We made him a really good offer, he’s looking at his options, he’s a very talented player so I don’t blame him."

    "If he wants to stay there is a contract for him, he’s out there looking for an alternative and he’s entitled to do that. Never say never."

    He added: "I’m very fond of him, he’s a very good footballer, he can score goals, why would I close the door?"

    "I think the longer times go on, the less likely it is that he stays. I just hope it’s a palatable solution where everyone says it works for all of us."
