Exeter City have announced the signing of Sam Nombe from MK Dons on a three year contract for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old came through the ranks at MK Dons and made his début in 2017 in an EFL tie against Forest Green Rovers. He’s been on loan at non league clubs Oxford City and Maidenhead, and last season spent some time at Championship side Luton Town where he started one game, and came off the bench another 10 times.
He’ll wear the number 10 shirt.
Manager Matt Taylor said of Sam signing:-
Sam is our first big signing of this recruitment window and one we’ve worked really hard on the last few weeks when we heard he was available.
He’s a player we are hopeful will really come on and affect the team. Anyone that has seen him play will know there is a raw talent there and we’ve got to add certain aspects and layers to his game to help him move towards the finished article.
It is important we invest in our own, so we felt the permanent move suited all parties and it’s an indication of what we want to do at this football club.
Sam has a lot of pace and power but is raw at the moment. We have to change his potential into a consistent player and someone that will lead the line for us. We are really looking forward to working with him on his game.

Exeter’s new striker spoke to the Club website and said of his move:-
I only found out about the interest recently. Matt Taylor gave me a call and said he wants me to come down and play and he really sold it to me. I’m really looking to progress here and push myself to be a better player.
I spoke to a few other players that were here before, and they have all loved it here and have moved forward as a person and player on the pitch. Hiram Boateng had nothing but positive words to say about the club and grace and gratitude towards the manager, so it’s made the decision easier to come here.
I like the style of football and the way the Exeter team plays, and I feel it will suit my style here. The fans are very noisy, and I know they can cause problems for the away team. I like the noise so I can’t wait to see the fans here.
