MK Dons boss Robbie Neilson says several clubs are trying to sign Charlton target Ben Reeves.

On Tuesday, News Shopper revealed that the Addicks had made a “firm” bid for the Northern Ireland midfielder.

And Neilson is prepared to move on to other targets if Reeves, whose contract runs out in the summer, leaves Stadium MK.

He told Milton Keynes Citizen: “Reevesy has great quality, but there are a number of teams interested in him.

“We’ve offered him a really good contract but he’s within his rights to go and see what’s out there and we respect that.

“We hope we can get something done, but if we can’t, we’ll move on to the next target.”

Reeves, 25, scored 10 goals for MK Dons last season in an underwhelming campaign for Neilson’s men.

And Charlton manager Karl Robinson, who signed Reeves for MK Dons in 2013, wants the playmaker to lead his promotion push next term.
