The club can confirm that defender Kyle McFadzean has today completed a transfer to MK Dons on a two-year contract for an undisclosed six-figure fee.
Kyle joined Reds four years ago from non-league Alfreton and was part of the squad that won back to back promotions from the Conference to League One.
He made 157 appearances for the club, six as substitute, and scored ten goals.
Chief Executive Michael Dunford said: “Kyle wanted to talk to MK when they enquired about him. He wanted to be a bit closer to his roots in Sheffield, where he has just bought a new house, and
felt at this stage of his career that he’d like a fresh challenge.
“It’s disappointing to lose Kyle, but he was out of contract in 12 months and it is likely he would have moved north then without the club receiving any form of compensation.
“He’s been a superb servant to this football club and we wish him all the best but we move on and the search for fresh additions to the squad continues.
“All the money from the sale of Kyle will be ploughed back into player wages and transfer fees to further strengthen the squad.”
