Alex Revell’s short stay with MK Dons, having signed a deal at the stadium:mk last season but he wasn’t able to help keep us in the Championship, is over with the experienced striker taking up and offer with League 1 rivals Northampton.

Karl Robinson brought in the striker in February with him scoring four-goals in 17-matches for the Dons.

Revell, signed from Cardiff, has played for the likes of Brighton, Rotherham and Leyton Orient previously, with him leaving at the end of his short-term deal with MK Dons to join Northampton.

He was being linked with his former Cardiff and Orient boss Russell Slade at Charlton but has signed for Northampton in a deal that will officially kick-in on 1st July, with him signing a two-year contract at Sixfields.

Cobblers boss Rob Page is quoted by the BBC as saying.

‘Alex is a fantastic signing for us and I am delighted to welcome him to the club.
‘This is a big signing for the club, a statement from us and we have had to be patient but we have beaten off a lot of competition to secure Alex’s signature.’

32-year-old Revel will probably be most fondly remembered for his penalty save against Preston in a one-one draw when the striker had to go in goal!
