MK Dons to sign player who had loan spell at AFC Wimbledon last season

MK Dons are set to sign Connor Lemonheigh-Evans from Stockport County, according to reporter Sam Byrne on X.

MK Dons are poised to snap up the winger on a free transfer with his contract at Stockport County due to expire at the end of next month. He spent time on loan at AFC Wimbledon during the first-half of last season.

Lemonheigh-Evans, 27, was given the green light to link up with Johnnie Jackson’s side on a temporary basis in September and went on to make 17 appearances for them in all competitions, chipping in with three goals. He then returned to Edgeley Park in January and helped the Hatters win promotion to League One.

In this latest update regarding his future, Stockport Express journalist Byrne has reported on X that MK Dons are expected to land him now. Mike Williamson’s side are gearing up for another year in League Two after losing to eventual winners Crawley Town in the play-offs.

Who is this?

The Dons could see Lemonheigh-Evans as someone to bolster their options up top and give them more competition and depth in attacking areas.

Stockport County announced on their retained list recently that they remain in talks with him over a new deal. However, it now appears he will be joining the likes of Paddy Madden, Neil Byrne and Antoni Sarcevic in heading out the exit door.

The Hatters signed the Welshman in 2022 after they won the National League title and he has since played 59 matches for the North West outfit, scoring nine goals and gaining three assists. He also had a loan stint at Notts County during his first year.

He started his career at Bristol City but only played once for their first-team as a youngster. He had loan spells away from Ashton Gate at Bath City and Torquay United to get some experience under his belt before linking up with the latter on a permanent basis in 2020.

Lemonheigh-Evans then fired 30 matches in 166 matches for the Gulls before landing his switch to Stockport County.

What next for MK Dons?

MK Dons will be aiming for promotion from the fourth tier again next term.

Williamson’s men have a big few months ahead as they look to prepare for a push for the top three.

Lemonheigh-Evans would be a shrewd addition for them if they can get a deal over the line and knows what it takes to get promoted.
