Jake Reeves has said goodbye to Stevenage and returned to one of his former clubs.

The midfielder has signed for AFC Wimbledon, starting a third spell with the Dons.

He was part of the team that gained promotion to League One in 2016 and after repeating the trick this year with Boro, those seriel promotions shot him to the top of the south London side's wanted list.

Head of football operations at Plough Lane, Craig Cope, said: "Jake is a player who we identified really early and collectively, as a recruitment team, we've worked hard to get this signing over the line. 

"As management staff, we are long standing admirers of Jake as a player.

"Though we're fully aware of his history with Wimbledon, the main reason for bringing him back is what he will offer on and off the pitch, especially as he's a multiple promotion winner."

Reeves was one of those players who were announced as "discussing terms on another season" when the new League One side reveaed their retained and released list last week.

But he has opted for a two-year deal with the League Two side, one that will come into effect on July 1 when his Boro contract officially ends.

The 29-year-old revealed that while the opportunity came a little out of the blue, the talks were done and dusted just as fast.

He said: "The move came about quite quickly if I’m being honest. I was coming towards the end of my contract [at Stevenage] and the opportunity arose to come back home, so here I am.

"Looking around at the stadium, at what the club wants to achieve, and speaking to the manager - that's all what I want to be a part of. 

"I will aim to bring experience, energy, and know-how and hopefully we can achieve something.

"I played about 50 games last season and about the same the season before, so I’m all good fitness wise.

"It is a tough league with relentless games all of the time and you need a mixture of everything to do well: hunger, desire, experience, energy, and composure.

"But I feel we can have a decent stab at it. When I was at Stevenage we were favourites to get relegated and we ended up finishing second."

Jake Taylor was the first of the Boro players released to find a new home, signing for National League Eastleigh.

Elliott List and Josh March have agreed to stay at the Lamex though, leaving just Terence Vancooten, Luther James-Wildin and Jake Forster-Caskey as the men weighing up their options from last season's squad.
