MK Dons are in talks to sign Cardiff City striker Rhys Healey.

The 24-year-old spent the first half of last season at the Stadium.MK and looks set to return there now, according to a report by Football Insider.

Healey, who still has a year left to run down on his contract with Cardiff, has fallen down the pecking order under Neil Warnock and is being allowed to leave this summer.

He scored nine goals in 21 appearances for MK Dons in the last campaign before returning to the Bluebirds in the January transfer window. He then played three times for them in the Premier League as they were relegated back to the Championship.

Healey started his career at Welsh side Connah’s Quay Nomads and bagged 19 goals in 34 games as a youngster which earned him a move to Cardiff in January 2013.

The forward has since played 16 times for the Bluebirds and has spent the majority of time at the Cardiff City Stadium out on loan with the likes of Colchester United, Dundee, Newport County, Torquay United and MK Dons.

A return to Paul Tisdale’s Dons is on the cards for him now and moving away from Cardiff for more regular first team action in League One next season would be a sensible move for Healey.
