MK Dons have confirmed the signings of striker Stephen Walker and goalkeeper Andy Fisher, who both return for second spells at the club.

Walker has joined on a season long loan from Middlesbrough, having previously played for the club in League 2 in the second half of the 2018-19 season, while Fisher has arrived on a permanent basis after leaving Blackburn Rovers.

The club have also confirmed the departure of striker Sam Nombe, who has moved to Championship side Luton Town on a season long loan with an option for the Hatters to make the move permanent if they so choose.

Walker played 7 times at the club in a loan spell at the club in League 2 in 2019. He also played a few times for Middlesbrough last season and had a brief loan spell at Crewe before the coronavirus-induced end to the season.

The striker told the official MK Dons website, “I enjoyed my time here two seasons ago and I’m looking forward to getting going again.

“The manager was a big reason why I wanted to come back here. I obviously know him from our time together as teammates and I’m excited to get to work under him and his management team.

“I want to come here and contribute as much as I can to help the team win games and climb the table.”

Meanwhile, 22-year-old goalkeeper Fisher returns to MK Dons after he previously joined the club on loan in January, with the player making a permanent move from Blackburn to Milton Keynes as a further option to Lee Nicholls and Laurie Walker.

He said, “I’m really pleased to be back with MK Dons. I enjoyed my time here last season and I was gutted it was cut short.

“I loved working with Dean, Lee and Laurie and believe we can all get the best out of eachother.

“I’m excited about the project that Russ is putting together here and I can’t wait to continue my development as an MK Dons player.”

The club also confirmed the departure of 21-year-old striker Nombe. The Dons’ academy prospect had made nearly 50 appearances for the club, including 7 this season so far, but he has been transferred to Championship Luton Town.
