According to a retweeted reply from Sun reporter Alan Nixon, MK Dons are already scouting around for next season and one player they are looking at is former Manchester City youngster Greg Leigh.

24-yaer-old, Manchester-born Leigh came up through the Manchester City academy system after signing for the Citizens from local side Sale United. The left-back steadily made his way up the club and into the Under-23s.

Here he featured 35 times for the now Premier League high-flyers, also spending some time out on loan at Crewe Alexandra for whom he featured 42 times (one goal/two assists).

After returning to City at the end of the summer of 2015, it was clear that his future didn’t lay there and a free transfer ensued to Bradford City. He spent a season with the Bantams, making just nine appearances and scoring two goals.

Another free transfer saw him sign for Bury, for whom he appeared in a flat 100 games where he scored three times and provided four assists. His two seasons at the Shakers ended at the start of July 2018 when he earned another free transfer over to Holland with Eredivisie side NAC Breda.

Whilst in Holland, he’s featured 14 times for NAC Breda, scoring once and providing three assists for the first team. He’s also weighed in with NAC Breda’s Under-21, scoring five goals (including a hat-trick) in just six games.

MK Dons, along with Leigh’s former side Bury, earned promotion from League Two this season. Bringing in someone with Greg Leigh’s football pedigree and experience will be a smart move on their behalf.
