JOHN Miles is returning to Accrington Stanley.

Reds assistant Jimmy Bell confirmed the 26-year-old, who spent the latter half of last season on loan at MK Dons, remains a Stanley player.

However, he admitted the club would listen to offers for the midfielder, who still has 12 months to run on his contract at the Fraser Eagle Stadium.

Bell said: "He's an Accrington player and Accrington pay his wages.

"He had a good end to the season with MK Dons and they may end up coming back in for him."

Miles signed last summer from Macclesfield, but failed to find any form for the Reds, although he excelled for Paul Ince's League Two winning side.

And Bell was confident that, should he stay in East Lancashire, he can reproduce those kinds of performances.

He added: "John's a very gifted footballer and perhaps he did suit MK Dons.

"He tends to drift in and out of games, but he could still play a big part at Accrington. It's just finding that right balance for John."
