The forward becomes the Dons’ third signing of the summer, with the length of his contract undisclosed.

Mason moves to Stadium MK as a free agent following his release from Wolves in January.

The 28-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at Fratton Park.

However, he endured a difficult spell, making just four appearances and failing to score for Kenny Jackett’s side.

After his deal came to a close on January 2, Mason returned to Molineux before he was released on transfer deadline day.

Plymouth and Charlton were both interested in acquiring the ex-Cardiff man’s services.

On his switch to MK Dons, Mason told the club’s website: ‘I’m over the moon to finally get this move done.

‘This is a club that has a lot of ambition. They are moving in the right direction and the facilities are so impressive.

‘The main thing for me, though, was the manager. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Tis (Paul Tisdale) and after I met him, it was a no brainer for me.

‘He talked about the game really well and spoke highly of me and how I would fit into his team.

‘With the vision he has and how he wants to play, I think I’ll fit in really well. I’m looking forward to working under him.’
