    Milton Keynes Dons have today announced former Stockport County midfielder Connor Lemonheigh-Evans as their first signing of the summer.

    The 27-year-old from Swansea joins the Dons after the expiry of his contract with the League Two champions, with whom he featured 22 times and contributed to nine goals (six of his own) en route to a winner's medal.

    The three-time Wales Under-21 international spent the first half of the season on loan at the Dons' bitter rivals AFC Wimbledon, contributing to five goals in 17 appearances across League Two and the FA Cup.

    This took his season totals to nine goals and five assists in 39 total appearances.

    Capable of playing in any attacking midfielder position, both centrally and out wide, Lemonheigh-Evans will provide some valuable attacking qualities to Mike Williamson's team as they look to secure promotion out of League Two in 2025.

    On signing terms at Stadium MK, Lemonheigh-Evans said: "I’m really happy to get this deal done!"

    "I’m really excited to get going and to see what the next couple of years will bring."

    "I spoke to the manager and other people within the Club, and they all made it clear on the ambition that the Club has, the way they want to go about things and the style of play to achieve that. I think it all really suits me."

    "I now want to get my head down, work hard and see what next season will bring."

    On what to expect in the player, he explained: "Ultimately, I’m very hard working, versatile as I’ve played in a lot of different positions, and I like to think that I add quality to the squad."

    "I want to contribute goals, assists and ultimately help the Club to achieve what everyone here wants to achieve."

    He continued to say: "I felt like I needed to go somewhere where I had the best opportunity to achieve what I did last season. I believe being here will give me the best chance to achieve another promotion."

    "I want to get promoted again. I want to bring quality and help the team as much as possible to achieve that."

    "I’m looking forward to them getting right behind us as that will give us even more of a chance to go and achieve something. I look forward to seeing them and hopefully we can all achieve it together."

    MK Dons Head Coach Mike Williamson shared his thoughts on the first arrival of the summer: "I’m really pleased to get this deal over the line and welcome Connor to Stadium MK."

    "Connor was a clear priority for us as not only does he bring an abundance of quality, but he’s a proven winner and adds a vast amount of experience into the squad."

    He concluded: "We’ve already seen what he is capable of achieving and we’re really excited about adding him into our team."
