Dons sign Bullard to prove strong ambitions
Milton Keynes Dons have shown their strong ambitions to launch a League One promotion bid, with the signing of former Wigan and Hull City midfielder, Jimmy Bullard.
The 33-year-old, who was released by Ipswich Town earlier this month, has signed a short-term deal, which will see him play his football as Stadium:mk until the New Year.
Bullard, who was presented to the home crowd before Tuesday’s 2-1 victory over Blackburn in the Capital One Cup, will wear the number 13 shirt and is available for selection at the weekend for a home match with Carlisle United.
A delighted Bullard told the club’s official website: “I came up to speak to Karl (Robinson) last night and I loved what he had to say and to be fair, he has given me the opportunity to play football, which I have missed.”
“I’m happy to get my feet in the door and to play for a football club who wanted me. I’ve had a nightmare with injuries and I have been out of the game, so I’m glad to be back.”
Bullard began his career at West Ham United and has also had spells with Peterborough United and Fulham, during a charismatic and dramatic career, which has seen him become of football’s most popular figures.
He is the fifth signing that Robinson has made this summer and the young manager has also set his sights on snapping up the forgotten man of North London, David Bentley, before Friday’s transfer window closure.
