Exeter Captain Poached by MK Dons

Much to the dismay of Exeter City fans, Club captain Jordan Moore-Taylor has used a clause in his contract to leave for another Club and for free.

An option in his contract allowed him to move on if the Grecians didn’t get promoted. JMT has played 184 games for Exeter, scoring 11 goals and getting sent off the once. He made his debut in September 2012, coming on for Danny Coles in a 3-0 win over Burton Albion at St James Park. His first goal came the following season in a 1-1 draw at home to Cheltenham.

Exeter City chairman Julian Tagg clearly disappointed with the move said:-

The club put a huge amount of time and effort into the development of Jordan into the player he is today. Jordan progressed through our academy, before becoming captain of his hometown club.

Jordan was offered a significant improved new deal which would have made him the highest paid player at the club, but he has rejected this offer and chose to sign for MK Dons.

Despite this, Jordan was a reliable, talented hard-working professional, who not only did great things on the pitch, but was a major contributor to our community programmes, with numerous appearances in community, and for that, we thank him for his service and wish him every success in the future.
