MK Dons not chasing Will Grigg despite recent links

    Milton Keynes Dons boss Russell Martin has quashed recent rumours that the club are chasing Sunderland striker Will Grigg.

    Grigg had a  positive loan spell with the Dons during the 2014/15 season, scoring 20 goals and adding five assists in 44 league appearances as the team earned automatic promotion to the Championship.

    That season lives long in the memory of Dons fans and the Northern Ireland international has once again been linked with a move back to Stadium MK, having had a few difficult seasons at the Stadium of Light.

    The link is unsurprising, with Martin expressing a desire to bring in another striker after the departures of Carlton Morris and Stephen Walker and the arrival of only Charlie Brown so far this window.

    But Martin was fairly assured in his denial of any potential move for Grigg in his post-match press conference after his side's 1-0 home loss to Charlton Athletic last night.

    He commented: "I think we've supposed to have been signing him for the last three windows, since I've been here."

    The Dons have been linked with Grigg as recently as the last transfer window, with Gillingham manager Steve Evans publicly mentioning the Dons' purported chasing of the former fan favourite after his side's 2-0 loss at Stadium MK back in October.

    He continued: "If you ask Steve Evans he'll probably tell you more than me. We're involved in a lot of players at the moment, that's an area we want to strengthen."

    "He's someone else's player, so I'm not going to talk about Will individually, but at this minute in time it's not one that I can see happening."
