Smith hails 'perfect' move
Milton Keynes Dons,
MK Dons have completed the signing of Alan Smith.
Smith, who finished last season on loan at the npower League One club, has signed a two-year contract with Karl Robinson's side following his release from Newcastle. The 31-year-old made a surprise move to the Dons from Barclays Premier League club Newcastle in January and went on to make 18 appearances, the last of which was a goal-scoring one in the play-off defeat to Huddersfield. After ending last season on a disappointing note at the Galpharm Stadium, the former Leeds and Manchester United player insists he has unfinished business. "When I came here last year I felt part of what the club were trying to achieve," Smith told the club's official website. "I made it clear I wanted to stay. There were quite a few other clubs in higher divisions that were interested in me but I think for me, in this stage of my career, I've come to the perfect place. "What I hope for now is two years where I can commit to MK Dons, give everything that I've got and do everything in my power to help us win promotion to the Championship."
