MK Dons are planning to talk to Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale later this week, according to Sky Sports.
Tisdale’s Exeter City side lost in the League Two Play-Off final yesterday to Coventry City in their second consecutive Play-Off final defeat. The 45-year-old does have an offer on the table to stay at Exeter for next season but is now weighing up his options.
He is a target for MK Dons, who are in the hunt for a new manager following their relegation from League One. They have also been linked with Keith Curle.
Tisdale is the longest serving manager in the Football League and has been in charge of Exeter since 2006. He therefore may be seeking a fresh challenge in his career. The prospect of building an MK Dons squad for an immediate promotion back to the third tier could be appealing to Tisdale.
There is no doubt that he is vastly experienced at League Two level and would be ideal for MK Dons. Exeter snapped up him in 2006 after Tisdale impressed as manager of Team Bath.
Tisdale has guided Exeter City to two promotions in his time at St James’ Park and has had his side involved in a handful of Play-Off encounters. His first promotion came from the Conference in 2008 and his second was when the Grecians were promoted to League One in 2009.
