Stephen Gleeson: MK Dons midfielder linked with Blackpool

The 24-year-old joined MK Dons from Wolves in the summer of 2009 following a loan spell and played under Blackpool boss Paul Ince in his first full season at stadium:mk.

He has been an integral performer for the Dons over the past four years and could now be offered the chance to step up to the Championship.

Ince is busy trying to put together a squad for the new season and completed the permanent signing of Gleeson's former team-mate Gary MacKenzie on Friday.

The Blackpool chief also used Saturday's pre-season friendly against Penrith to take a look at several trialists.

Among the players on show in the 2-0 win were former Blackpool defender Rob Edwards, ex-Hull City striker Caleb Folan and Ibrahim Diaby.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
