Town Closing in on MK Dons Midfielder Fraser
Wednesday, 14th Jul 2021 18:59

TWTD understands Town are closing in on the signing of MK Dons midfielder Scott Fraser.

We understand the 26-year-old Scot, who primarily plays as an attacking central midfielder, has been at Portman Road today for talks regarding a move to the Blues with confirmation likely this evening.

Still in contract for another year, it’s likely that Town have agreed a high six-figure fee for Fraser’s services.

Last night, MK boss Russell Martin revealed that his club had turned down an offer for Fraser, who as a result was left out of their 3-1 friendly victory over King's Lynn.

It now seems certain that it was Town who made that bid and have subsequently improved what was on the table.

“We've rejected a bid, a good bid but discussions are ongoing and I didn't think it was right to include him tonight," Martin told the MK Citizen. "There has been a lot of discussion about his future over the summer.

“He's come back and trained and is in great condition, but then it's come to light about this interest. People have eight weeks to get business done, but then wait to do it two weeks into pre-season. But that's all I can tell you really - we'll wait to see how that works out.

"We know what Scotty can bring, we saw it last season. If he stays, brilliant, fantastic. But if we get to a point when it's a good deal for everyone then so be it. We have players ready and lined up to take the mantle."

Fraser started his career with hometown club Dundee United during which time he spent a spell on loan with Airdrieonians.

In 2018 he moved on to Burton Albion, then after two years at the Pirelli Stadium departed for the Dons, for whom he made 45 starts and five sub appearances last season, scoring 14 times.

Fraser looks set to become the club’s eighth signing of the summer and the second this week following the recruitment of Joe Pigott from AFC Wimbledon.

He knows how to take a penalty that's for sure

Yes please. Brilliant at this level. Would be a fantastic signing.

Good signing. Presumably instead of crooks? Very decent if we got both

Monkey_Blue added 19:25 - Jul 14
I assume we’ve called time on Crooks? CB is where we are weakest in terms of senior pros. Nsiala along with all Hurst’s signings is league one at best….although given Gibson is the one we’ve been linked with recently, I would think we are looking for another as well with more experience.

14 goals from midfield last year - nearly as many as we scored 👀

Sounds good though, we have lacked goals from that area for a long time.

Would rather have his brother Ryan 👍🏼

Does this mean Crooks is defo not happening (not complaining was always a big ask to prise him away)?

Bluearmy71 added 20:02 - Jul 14

And for anyone else who asks, Phil said in the forum that "Crooks is still ongoing" when asked the same question

Linkboy13 added 20:03 - Jul 14
He looks like the player Bishop you'st to be. Seems strange we went straight in with a high six figure fee yet bid so low for Crooks which looks like is now dead and buried with already an abundance of midfielders on board.

Superb signing, COYB!! I wonder if we’ll still go for Crooks?

Fantastic news and it’s good to see we are attracting quality players at the level we are at. Despite what some merchants of doom on here say, we are an attractive proposition with cash to invest and the message being conveyed here is, we are going places.

Smithy added 20:08 - Jul 14
Great signing, wonder if they'll replace him with Bishop

ringwoodblue added 22:09 - Jul 14
Looks like this ex-scum manager is not playing as hard ball as the other one.

KiwiBlue2 added 22:29 - Jul 14
The goal threat is very welcome especially when you consider the last few years. With Piggot, Bonne and Norwood up front and this guy in central midfield we are starting to develop a decent level of threat. A cb or two and a new winger, who pose a threat from set-pieces would complete the picture nicely .... coyb
