The former England U21 stopper penned a six-month deal with the Dons on Monday after being released by Sheffield Wednesday.

Weaver is keen to get some game-time under his belt but the 34-year-old knows he will have to work hard for any opportunities that come his way.

Weaver said: "I want to play but I'm sure Jamie will have something to say about that.

"He's been the number one here for quite some time and he's obviously a very able keeper. I think he played just about every game last year.

"I'm under no illusions. I don't feel as though I'm going to walk straight into the team.

"All I can do is my best in training. If and when I get an opportunity, it's up to me to take it."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
