MK Dons have made the versatile Mitch Hancox their fourth signing of the week, confirmed by their club website.

Hancox, 24, has signed a one-year deal at Stadium MK , this move will happen once his Macclesfield Town contract expires at the end of June.

The defender becomes Paul Tisdale’s fourth signing as MK Dons manager following the arrivals of Jordan Moore-Taylor, Ryan Watson and Lawson D’Ath earlier this week.

Mitch Hancox’s thoughts – 

“It’s amazing to be here,” Hancox told the club website “I had two brilliant years at Macclesfield but I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve got here.

“Everything about the Club is set up to do well. The manager was really enthusiastic when I met him and he’s had success in this league. I’m excited to get going and can’t wait to start.”

He added: “I work hard – that is a big part of my game and if you see I’m not doing that then do tell me! I like to chip in with goals too and be creative, putting balls in the box.”

Manager’s thoughts – 

Manager Paul Tisdale told the club website: “Mitch has good pedigree having started his career at Birmingham City, where he made first-team appearances as a young player. He moved on and he’s had a couple of very good seasons at Macclesfield Town”

“He can play up and down the left-hand side, he’s full of energy and I’m looking forward to seeing how he fits into this environment. He is another player who has played a lot of football in a winning team recently and I hope he can bring that into his game here at Stadium MK.”
