Dean Lewington: Signed a new deal

Lewington, the club's longest-serving player, is entering his 10th season with the Milton Keynes side and has put pen to paper on terms to keep him at stadium:mk until June 2015.

The 27-year-old left-back has been in discussions with the Dons throughout the summer as his contract was set to expire at the end of this month.

"It has been pretty close for the last two or three weeks so it is nice to know where I am going to be for the next few seasons and I'm glad it is all sorted," Lewington told the club's official website.

"It took a little longer than we would have all liked but at the end of the season you disappear off on your holidays and before you know it a few weeks have gone by. It probably dragged out a little longer than it needed to but we were talking and I was always confident of signing.

"It's nice to say I am part of this now; I can really focus on pre-season and kicking on with the season ahead. It will also help the gaffer with his plans for the team too. It's great to be a part of it and hopefully we can take the club where it wants to go.

"It's my 10th season so a testimonial is on the cards, but it will take a little while to work out and hopefully come Christmas I might know what we will do."

Dons boss Karl Robinson added: "I'm ecstatic that Dean has signed, he is this club through and through. I never thought at any stage that he wouldn't be here next season.

"He is a tremendous asset to this football club and one of his ambitions is to play in the Championship with MK Dons. He deserves all of the plaudits that he gets and I hope one day he gets the success that his loyalty deserves.

"In modern day football it is a great achievement to be heading into his 10th season with MK Dons, but knowing Dean as a character it doesn't surprise me. He has a dream and a goal with this football club, he has started it and he wants to achieve it."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
