Crewe Alexandra have confirmed that forward Jordan Bowery will leave the club this summer and will join MK Dons when his contract expires at the end of the month.

Bowery, 27, started his professional career with Chesterfield with a short-term loan out to Barrow before Aston Villa took him to Villa Park where he struggled to make an impact in limited game time. After spells with Doncaster Rovers, Rotherham United, Bradford City and Oxford United, he joined struggling League 2 side Leyton Orient in the summer of 2016 before joining the Alex, initially on loan in January 2017 before signing permanently the following summer.

He joins former Alex loanee Chuks Aneke at the Dons.

What will this move mean for MK Dons and Bowery?

It comes as a bit of a shock that he’s signed for a League 1 club but I can’t see him becoming a regular starter at that level if I’m honest. The Dons get a hard-working player that will give his all for the club however he’s not a prolific goalscorer (he only has 55 goals in his career having played nearly 350 games) due to a lack of composure in front of goal at times.
