MK Dons have snapped up Plymouth Argyle striker Jermaine Easter for an undisclosed fee.

Easter has signed a two-year contract with the League One club after struggling to make an impact during his time at Plymouth.

He originally moved to Home Park on loan from Wycombe Wanderers, but mustered just six goals in 37 appearances for the club.

The Wales international had loan spells at Millwall and Colchester United last season, and is looking forward to a new challenge after becoming Paul Ince's first signing.

"It feels great to be here, when you get the feeling for somewhere, like I have here, it's really exciting," Easter told the club's official website.

"I remember watching Paul Ince's Manchester United team as a kid and I really looked up to him so I can't wait to start working with him.

"I've come here for promotion, it's as simple as that. That's what we should be targeting as a team and I'll be giving my all to help the team achieve that."

Dons chairman Pete Winkelman added: "We're really excited to welcome Jermaine to the football club, he's a player we have admired for a long time and arrives here with a proven goalscoring record.

"He's an ambitious young man with an enormous amount of talent and is another exciting addition to what is already looking like a strong squad for the new season.

"If Jermaine can reach the level of performance we all know he is capable of, we have every confidence he can achieve great things both with MK Dons and at international level."
