Kyle John McFadzean (born 20 February 1987) is an English professional footballer who plays for Milton Keynes Dons as a defender.

Club career[edit]

Sheffield United[edit]

Born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire,[1] McFadzean was a member of Sheffield United's academy before being given a squad number for the 2005–06 season despite playing the majority of the campaign in the reserves. He made his first-team debut as a substitute in place of Keith Gillespie in a League Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town on 20 September 2005.

Alfreton Town[edit]

He signed for Conference North side Alfreton Town on a free transfer in July 2007.

Crawley Town[edit]

In August 2010, McFadzean joined Conference National side Crawley Town for an undisclosed fee, making his debut as a substitute in Crawley's 1–0 away win at Altrincham. He was named in the Conference Team of the Year for the 2010–11 season after Crawley won the title and so promotion to League Two.[2]

Milton Keynes Dons[edit]

On 20 June 2014, McFadzean signed for Milton Keynes Dons from Crawley Town for an undisclosed fee, on a two-year deal with an option of a third year.[3] He scored in his league début against Gillingham capitalising off fellow new signing Danny Green's cross. The game ended a 4-2 victory to the Dons. On top of that, in his cup début he scored with a back-heel in what ended up being a 3-1 win over fierce rivals AFC Wimbledon he was awarded the man of the match award.[4]

International career[edit]

McFadzean gained England C recognition in September 2009, as he was called into the team that played against Hungary U23s,[5] and then retained his place in the squad for a 2–1 victory in November over Poland U23s.[6][7]

Personal life[edit]

Kyle's younger brother is Callum McFadzean who currently plays for Sheffield United as a midfielder.[8]
