Milton Keynes Dons boss Paul Ince has snapped up the former Walsall midfielder Mark Wright on a two-year contract.
The 25-year-old, who was released at the end of last term, made almost 150 appearances for the Saddlers after making his first-team debut in September 2000.
"I'm delighted to be here and to be working under the gaffer, he was one of the main reasons why I decided to come to MK Dons," Wright told the Dons' official website.
"I had a few clubs interested but this was the one I had to come to because it's a big club.
"Hopefully we can do well and get ourselves promoted."
