Defender Pele released by Milton Keynes Dons

Pele has played for Southampton and West Brom

Milton Keynes Dons have released defender Pele after he played just one game for the club.

The 32-year-old arrived at Stadium MK on non-contract terms one day before the League One opener at Walsall.

The return of Mathias Kouo-Doumbe from suspension and Gary Mackenzie's improving fitness mean the Dons are better equipped in defence.

The Cape Verde centre-half's only appearance came in the League Cup victory over Dagenham & Redbridge.

Boss Karl Robinson told the club's website: "It was an area we needed to strengthen in the short-term because of suspensions and injuries and Pele's efforts helped us to do that."
