MK Dons have signed Chelsea midfielder Joe Tillen on a free transfer.
Tillen has inked a one-year deal at the League Two outfit.
The youngster is Martin Allen's second new signing since taking charge of the club.
"I've watched Joe for a couple of years in Chelsea's reserve and youth teams; Joe will be joining our squad it must be said at the present moment as a squad player," Allen told the club's official website.
"He's signed a one-year contract with a one-year option and we'll see if Joe can adapt to first-team football, making the big step up from reserve team football to competitive men's football.
"He's an attacking left sided player with good pace, he comes from a good family with a good work ethic and hopefully Joe will be a young player that develops for our future here at Milton Keynes."
