Clive Platt has committed his long-term future to Milton Keynes Dons by signing a contract extension until 2008.

The striker has been courted by Sheffield Wednesday in recent months, despite only joining MK Dons from Peterborough United in January.

The Owls had a £100,000 offer rejected in the summer, with MK Dons boss Danny Wilson rating Platt in the £500,000 category.

There have been no further approaches and Wilson will now be delighted that Platt has signed an extension.

Platt had no qualms in agreeing to stay at The National Hockey Stadium and concurred upon the new deal after talks with Wilson.

"It's good news to get it sorted," Platt told the club's official website. "I know that I'm at the club now for the rest of this season and two more.

"One of the reasons for signing this new deal was to show that I'm committed to the club.

"I spoke to the gaffer after the Sheffield Wednesday interest and he asked my opinion and told me he wants me at the club.

"I told him that I was more than happy at the MK Dons and wanted to pledge my future to the club. So we've got our heads together and come up with a new deal that shows the club want me and I want to stay here."
