Milton Keynes Dons have finalised the permanent signing of Luke Chadwick from Norwich City.
Chadwick impressed during a loan spell at stadium:mk earlier this season, scoring three goals in eight appearances.
However, his time with the League One promotion contenders was cut short by a knee injury and he returned to Norwich in November.
He is still recovering from the knee ligament problem, but has now completed a free transfer to MK Dons and has signed a two-and-a-half year contract.
"I can't wait to get started again," Chadwick told the club's official website.
"I've got some work to do to get over this injury at the moment, but I'm looking forward to getting back on the pitch and hopefully helping the team win promotion.
"I really enjoyed it here earlier in the season, I felt really settled even though I was on loan and the supporters were brilliant to me.
"I found my fitness, was playing regularly and was really enjoying my football. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up where I left off."
