Bristol City’s Kieran Agard joins MK Dons – Twitter Reacts

Written by

Kieran Agard has joined MK Dons for a club record transfer fee from Bristol City. The 26-year-old Londoner has signed a three year contract at MK Dons, and manager Karl Robinson clearly rates the former Everton academy product enough to spend an undisclosed club record fee on the striker.

Agard has great pedigree at League One level, getting promoted out of the division on two occasions with Rotherham United and then Bristol City. In those two seasons Agard netted 21 and 13 times respectively, assisting with another 13 cumulatively – thus proving his worth to a side that want to secure a swift return to the second tier. Robinson has already gone on record to state that Agard was the man he had wanted for some time and had to remain “patient” to get the deal done, and says that this capture is a “statement of intent” to the rest of the league.

 

I would agree with this sentiment wholeheartedly. Never quite given the opportunity to impress in the Championship at Bristol City, where he found himself behind Jonathan Kodjia, Aaron Wilbraham and more recently Tammy Abraham in the pecking order, it is a wise time at this stage of his career to seek regular first team football.

His goal scoring record in League One speaks for itself, and Agard proved, in the limited time he had on the pitch in the Championship, that he was capable of putting in a shift at that level. As well as scoring valuable goals for City against Leeds United and Hull City (now of the Premier League) in the Championship, Agard also netted against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup – sparking scenes of delirium amongst the travelling Robins supporters.

Alongside proven strikers such as Simon Church and Nicky Maynard at MK Dons, you wouldn’t back against Agard firing a third club to promotion to the second tier of English football.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the former Miller’s transfer:
