MK Dons have confirmed that full-back Dean Lewington has signed a new one year deal with the club.

The 36-year-old, who has been Dons captain since 2008 and has played in every season since the Dons’ rebrand in 2004, was out of contract at the end of the 2019/20 season.

But he has extended his stay with the club, having put pen to paper on a one year extension.

The deal extends the contract status of the longest serving player in MK Dons’ history, and the longer serving player in England among those still active.

Lewington has made 757 appearances for MK Dons in all competitions since featuring in the very first MK Dons game back in 2004 against Barnsley. He was made club captain following the departure of previous skipper Keith Andrews in 2008.

He has continued to be a regular for MK Dons, making 49 as part of the team that won promotion to League One in 2018/19 and 39 in the early-ended 2019/20 campaign – the most of any Dons player in the season.
