MK Dons have handed academy graduate Daniel Powell his first professional contract.
The 17-year-old forward became the club`s youngest goalscorer earlier this season and has been rewarded with a two-and-a-half year contract to tie him to stadium:mk.
"I didn`t expect to be involved this season and I`m very grateful to the manager for giving me the opportunity to play," he said. "I`ve still got a lot to learn and a lot to improve on but I want to develop into the player the club thinks I can be."
