Sky Bet League 1 key transfer: Tom Hitchcock to Milton Keynes Dons

14 July 2014

Following his release by Premier League-bound Queens Park Rangers, young striker Tom Hitchcock has signed a three-year deal at Milton Keynes Dons.

The Dons had the second-poorest goal difference out of the top 13 teams in Sky Bet League during 2013/14, and scored the fewest home goals out of any side in the top half of the table; just 29.

However, in Hitchcock Karl Robinson has signed a player who enjoyed a rich vein of form at the end of last season, netting five times in 11 outings for Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off winners Rotherham United.

That included a hat-trick from the bench against Gillingham. He also netted three times in six games for Crewe Alexandra, confirming his eye for goal.

Speaking to the Milton Keynes Citizen, boss Robinson said: "He scores forward's goals, poacher's goals, clever goals. He's a technically gifted footballer."

On his move, Hitchcock told the same publication: "It's an exciting time for me. A few clubs were interested but as soon as I knew MK Dons were in for me, there was no other choice."

At the other end of the pitch, the stadiummk club have made another useful signing by acquiring Crawley Town defender Kyle McFadzean for an undisclosed fee.

He ended a four-year spell with the Red Devils, where he won promotion from the Conference Premier to Sky Bet League 1, to join Robinson's side.

The Dons have also added Danny Green, but Ryan Hall, Izale McLeod, Stephen Gleeson, Alan Smith and Luke Chadwick have departed.
