He became the first player from the Milton Keynes area to represent the Dons.

The defender has already played at the Northern Commercials Stadium for three separate clubs – Gillingham, Fleetwood Town and Charlton Athletic.

Along with loan spells with Gillingham and Fleetwood, Chicksen has also played on loan at Leyton Orient during his time at Brighton.

He played twenty-five times for Charlton Athletic last season, scoring in the Addick’s impressive 5-1 victory at Bristol Rovers.

Chicksen is of English, Zimbabwean and Chinese descent. Chicksen’s mother is English and his father is from Zimbabwe and Chinese heritage.

Chicksen has played in the Sky Bet Championship and League One Play-Offs during his career so far.

His birthday is 27 September 1991.
