Defender and free agent Jordon Spence signs for MK Dons on a one-year deal, with an option for another 12 months.

The 24-year-old defender was released by West Ham, the club he had spent nine years with, in May, after seven different loan spells, the last two of which being for the Dons. He played 39 times during these spells, scoring two goals impressing many Dons fans.

Speaking to the former England U-21 international said: ‘It feels great to be back, I’m really, really happy to be here.

‘I’ve said many times how much I enjoyed my spells here last season, so I’m looking forward to pulling on the Dons shirt once again’.

Spence was a regular starter last term for the Dons at centre-halve but the summer arrival of Kyle McFadzean means he will have to work for his place in the squad, giving the Dons added strength in depth. However his versatility as a natural right-back could aid his chase for a starting eleven place, with first-choice right-back Lee Hodson injured. Manager Karl Robinson was delighted to pick up such a high profile signing in Spence, a continuation of the Dons improved summer dealings, and is looking forward to the competitive edge for places he`ll add this season.

He added: ‘I’m ecstatic to be able to bring Jordan back to the club. He was a little bit out of our reach at first – I know there was interest from Championship clubs but for whatever reason nothing materialised.

‘He will push the two centre-halves and the full-backs because he’s a natural right-back anyway. He provides us with great strength in depth and hopefully we can build on that.’
