He told the club's official website: "We turned two really good offers down for Dany N'Guessan from MK Dons so we're not a selling club. Whilst we felt it was the right time for Lee to go, it was slightly different for Dany who is a key player for me.
"It could have been the easy option to have taken the money and put that money in the bank but we didn't. We decided to keep Dany N'Guessan and I'm glad we have done.
"When I first arrived he was a player who was up and down and very sulky but this season he's probably been our most consistent player.
"I'm delighted that we turned the bids down and am hoping that Dany will extend his contract here."
