Daniel Vendrys Powell (born 12 March 1991) is an English footballer who plays for Milton Keynes Dons, as a winger and occasionally as a striker.

Career[edit]

Born in Luton, Bedfordshire,[1] Powell made his debut for Milton Keynes Dons in a 3–1 victory over Hartlepool United on 15 November 2008, coming on as a substitute in the 84th minute and scoring the team's final goal in the 90th minute.[2]

Powell playing for Crawley Town in 2009

Powell joined Crawley Town on loan on 3 August 2009.[3] After that he was loaned to another Blue Square Premier side, Forest Green Rovers.[4]

Powell became a regular with Forest Green and the club decided to extend his loan deal until the end of the season in January 2010. After finishing the season with Forest Green, Powell returned to the Dons and scored on his return against Walsall on 8 May 2010.

Having not made an appearance for the Dons at the beginning of the 2010–11 season, Powell joined Darlington on a one month loan on 1 October 2010,[5] and made his full home debut in his new teams game the next day against Wrexham.[6]

Powell returned to MK Dons in November 2010 and began to break into the first team, his position was cemented after the sale of Aaron Wilbraham[7] and Jermaine Easter left the club with just two senior strikers. Powell went on to score 10 goals in 25 league appearances in the 2010/2011 season for the dons.

Daniel is a forward thinking player who loves to run at fullbacks and is a strong asset for the Dons down the flanks. The youth graduate is contracted to the Dons until June 2013. Powell has now established himself as a first team regular and has become an indespensible asset to the club, as well as being a huge favourite amongst the fans.

On 5 March 2013, Powell signed a 2-year extension to his current MK Dons deal, keeping him at the club until June 2015.[8]
