The 23-year-old Republic of Ireland international was set to become a free agent at the end of June but, despite suffering disappointment in the play-offs for a second straight season, he has opted to challenge for promotion with the Dons next year.

He told the club's official website: "Before the play-offs I knew I wanted to stay. I do want to play at a higher level, but I want to do it with this team.

"I have been here for three years now, I have made a lot of friends and I am settled in the area. I want to get into the Championship with this team and with the manager (Karl Robinson).

"The last two years have really hurt so I want to put it right. It is driving me on to stay clear of the play-offs and hopefully go up automatically."

Gleeson made 46 appearances for the Dons last season, scoring five goals.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.
